Learn / improve / practice your English, while having a homestay live-in experience of beautiful and peaceful California. Lathrop is the fastest growing city in California, for good reasons. Local food trucks and plazas with different cultural foods are walking distance from the home. The almond capitol of the world is 20 minutes away, where vast fields of almond (nut) trees can be found and the smell of almond blossoms fills the air in the spring. Learn more about natural earth medicines and American culture. Yosemite National Park, full of glacier-carved mountains and lush trees in the forests, great for hiking and exploring nature, is a nice day-trip, 2hrs away .

Lathrop, the city where you will live is filled with tons of beautiful parks, basketball/baseball/cricket/soccer/futbol/tennis courts, and public exercise equipment. Beautiful walking paths along the San Joaquin River are nearby (1 km=0.6miles away). Target, Starbucks, In-and-out Burger (a California specialty), and more are all walking distance as well.
