Would you be willing to accept someone of the opposite sex?(only if he is cute apparently)
Will your exchange student have their own room?(yeah, what if they are total neeks?)
Religion? My daughter wrote "NO!!!"
Does your family currently practise this religion? "NO!!!"
Does your son/daughter have any special dietary requirements? "Vegetarian but eat fish. No meat which means no chicken." (The French need this spelt out.)
Does he/she have any allergies to particular foods? "Anything green!"
Only a French school would have questions like:
Do you give permission for your son/daughter to:
Go out without adult supervision (Yes)
To smoke (No)
To drink alcohol with meals (Yes)
Would you be willing to accept in your home a child who smokes?(NO!!! I finally splutter)

She has answered already.
"calm" (yes)"open" (no) "enthusiastic" (no) "easy-going" (no) "young for his/her age" (no) "energetic"(yes) "shy"(yes) "mature"(yes)?
My daughter then wrote under: Any further details which are useful or which would assist in finding a partner for your son/daughter: "David Bowie obsessive and Morrissey. Individualist. Rebel.".
(Bowie is her latest thing. I've had to get out my David Bowie fanclub membership material from the early 70's).
"I just want a crap family like ours. You know. Crap but good." My teenager says.
