今年參加一年交流計劃來港的外國交流生需要提早回國，但在短短的時間之內，他們與本地的接待家庭已建立了深厚感情。一起來看看捷克交流生 Ondrej 接待媽媽 Joyce Yuen 的分享吧:
還記得那是星期四晚上，我們準備睡覺，Ondrej 突然收到通知，星期日便要離開。他跟我說時，我還懷疑他在説笑，但看着他眼有淚光，才知道是真的。一時間大家都很難接受，我們還一起抱著哭了起來。那一晩，Ondrej 更與我的兒子聊到很晚。
This year foreign exchange students in Hong Kong have to return to their countries early, but within this short period of time, they have already built up close relationship with their host families. Let's read the sharing of Joyce Yuen, host mum of Czech Republic host student Ondrej:
I still remember that was a Thursday night and we were preparing to sleep, Ondrej was informed that he have to leave Hong Kong on Sunday. When he first told us the news, I thought that he was joking. But soon we knew that it was true, because we saw him almost crying. It was very hard to accept at the moment, we hugged and cried. Ondrej and my son even had a very long chat that night.
It finally came to the time when we had to say goodbye at the airport, my son cried and he was not willing to let Ondrej go. I asked my son ''Don't you always argue with your brother? After he leaves, no one will argue with you any more, you can have everything by yourself.'' and unexpectedly he said ''We fight because we are real friends!'' Yes communication and adaptation are needed in building relationship, there will be laughters and tears, which add colors to our life.
