It can be great to have your own family visit you while you’re studying in New Zealand. Plan their visit well so it fits in with your studies and your homestay family.
If you’re in a homestay and your family wants to visit you, you’ll need to work out a time that suits everyone.
If your family visits you too soon after you arrive it may disrupt the process of adapting to your life here, and make learning English more difficult. You may prefer to enjoy your family's company in holiday time or after you’ve finished your studies. Your new English skills will make you the perfect tour guide!
You can book air tickets to New Zealand for your family while you are here but it will probably be cheaper for your family to buy tickets in your home country.
