I am a single woman of 60. My home is small but beautiful. I have 1 cat that I rescued, she is 11, and a Maine Coon cat age 3. I am a huge animal lover and my cats are so, so friendly. My neighborhood is quiet and have many close friends here. I have a lovely garden and swimming pool. I live on the south east side of Milwaukee Wisconsin and have owned my home for 27 years. I am 4 miles south of downtown and 3 miles north of the airport plus 1 mile west of Lake Michigan. I have a lovely kitchen and large downstairs living area that would be comfortable for studying, watching a movie, or having friends over for a visit. Won't you come study , visit, and enjoy my beautiful city? Smiles are abundant here. Happiness guaranteed.

    The lovely house is located in the quiet and best area of Milwaukee the backyard is huge and nice to seat down and chill out.
    Coffe shops, brewerys, pubs and other nice restaurants are like 1/2miles away.
    Susan she's a nice little woman, full of energy and always happy, helpful for any questions or request and knows all the tricks about Milwaukee.
    I highly recommend Susan and her lovely house well furnished.

    There's nothing missing at Susan's house. The comfort, the friendliness, the friends, and the purring of the cats. The decoration music and cat pleases me a lot. Susan told me the places to see and events in town to miss as the German festival. Although the house is not in the city center, it is not a problem the bus takes you there and this ride is nice.

    It is beautiful thing to live and have a new adventure with homestay to learn English. My mom Susan is the best woman who will help you to learn English and speak as native American do. I had trouble with English language , and I was afraid to talk with American people, but when I lived with my mom Susan, she helped me to break the barrier of fear because she always make debate with me about every things around us. That helped me to be successful student in my school due to practicing with my mom Susan every day. Also, she has an amazing house like museum ,and cute cat. I believe that when you see that cat, you will love her as I do now because I didn’t like cat until I saw that cute cat which my mom Susan own. there is a beautiful garden in her house that will you to study, and feel comfortable because there is swimming pool in the garden, so you could swim in the summer or study front of it.. when you live with my mom Susan, you will see different kinds of food such as Italian food, and you will taste the best BRQ in your life because he likes global chef . I always call her mom Susan because she deal with likes my real mom but she is from United States. Therefore if want to be perfect in the English language ,speak as Native American do , live in comfortable house, see a nice dealing, taste a delicious food, and have ground information about American culture in order to stay away from mistakes with them, you have to live with mom Susan because she will do all of these as she did with me.

    I had a wonderful time while staying with the most amazing hoest in the world. She is just like my Mom. I am always call her Mom. Believe me when you live with her you will feel just like home except with different language. She is very helpfull. She will help you to learn the English language very easy. If you want to enjoy and learn English in Milwaukee I advice you to live with my American Mom Susan Joyce.
