All hosts are prepared to speak English.
Many hosts have acquired much of their language skill from travel, study, or work.
However, always keep in mind that despite how excited the host is to communicate with you, many do not normally speak English on a daily basis so your patience would be greatly appreciated.
Each participant may speak at different levels, and some may speak other languages. Many of these details can be confirmed on the host’s profile before booking but if you are concerned, feel free to contact us anytime.
On the otherhand, if you are studying Japanese and you would rather speak in Japanese with your host you are more than welcome to including writing your request in nihongo.
