How To Get Along With Your Host Family

How To Get Along With Your Host Family

Living with a host family is an opportunity like no other.  You will get to know the local culture not just as a visitor and observer, but as a part of a family.  That doesn’t mean that it will be all smooth sailing, though.  From language barriers to misunderstandings about one another’s cultures, living with a host family presents a number of challenges.  Here are some tips on what to expect, and how to make sure that your home-stay abroad goes well. Language Barrier The biggest problem that you are likely to encounter is the language barrier.  Although members of your host family will likely have some English ability, there’s a good chance that it will be fairly basic.  Whether you have a good foundation in the local language, or have just learned a few words, communicating with you host family will likely pose a challenge. Asking your local friends and coworkers to help translate can be a great help, but ultimately it will only get you so far.  You can’t rely on translators for the day-to-day interactions and conversations that make up most of your life with your host family.  Your own studies of the local language will help.

A Taste of Georgia

A Taste of Georgia

Flavorful dishes, homemade bread, and plenty of wine are essential at the Georgian dinner table. Influenced by both European and West Asian traditions, Georgian food, filled aromatic herbs and spices, plays an important role in social culture. Here are a few of the most characteristic dishes of a Georgian meal.   Georgian Dishes Khachapuri This traditional Georgian bread is stuffed with a mixture of eggs, various cheeses, and herbs.  This mixture is cooked until the cheese inside of the bread has melted to form a delicious filling.  Khachapuri is a staple of most Georgian meals. Khinkali  Dumplings—Georgian style!  Fillings for Khinkali can include meat, vegetables, potatoes, and cheese. Suluguni Love it or hate it—this sour, pickled cheese is something you have to try during your stay in Georgia.  It has a salty, savory taste, and is often deep fried to mask its strong odor.   Georgian Desserts Georgian sweets and desserts tend to be based around nuts or fruit.  Various nuts, fruits, and sometimes honey, are combined in different ways to create these delicious treats. Churchkhela  This dessert is popular in many countries in the region, including Turkey, Greece, and Russia.  It is made by dipping a string of nuts, […]

Georgia’s Chiatura Church

Georgia's Chiatura Church

About 10 miles from Georgia’s small town of Chiatura, the Katskhi Pillar juts upward from verdant green hills. At nearly 140 feet, this towering monolith is a marvel in itself—but more remarkable still is the ancient church sitting at the top.  Known as Chiatura church, this ancient stone structure has overlooked the hills of Imereti province for over a thousand years—and it continues to have a place in Georgia’s culture and religion. It is believed that, before Chiatura church was built, the pillar was an ancient site for pagan rituals.  When Christianity took root in Georgia, a group called the Stylites took over the pillar.  Stylites were Christian ascetics who prayed, preached, and often lived for years at the top of pillars. The Katskhi Pillar provided a perfect natural site for their ascetic lifestyle.  Sometime between the 6th and 8th centuries, they constructed Chiatura church atop the pillar.  Ancient, weather-worn stones provided some shelter and comfort for the devotees living atop this natural monolith. Since the 15th century, the Stylite’s spiritual lifestyle has nearly died out.  The Chiatura church, however, provides one of the last sites where this type of pillar-dwelling asceticism is practiced.  An Orthodox Christian monk named Father […]
