Things to know when hosting exchange student

We'll be hosting an exchange student this summer, not via an agency but FoaF relative. If you've hosted an exchange student, what was your experience like, and any advice to share ?

We're an easy going family with kids. A good friend asked a group if anyone wanted to host he niece for a few weeks this summer. Niece is French, and would like to spend time in the US with a family to learn/sharpen her English language skills.
We figured why not, sounds like fun. I have no worries and figure it will be a fun and interesting experience for all of us.
But I would solicit advice from anyone that's hosted an exchange student about what troubles you ran into, or things you did that were good/bad/whatever.
