HIGH SCHOOL EXCHANGE  PROGRAMS 
WHAT IS A HIGH SCHOOL EXCHANGE STUDENT?
 

You have probably felt the urge to do something different. To chart your own path. The other side of the world just got closer!Life isn't only about what you see and do in your own country, hometown or school, or even with your friends. What is beyond? You need to challenge yourself, to take a chance, you can dare to be different!

 You'll discover that every moment, every conversation and experience, challenges the way you look at the world. You'll see differences as well as similarities in people and their actions, in their beliefs and values. 

Suddenly you'll realize what it means to belong to a certain country and culture. Its an exciting world out there!You'll learn about yourself as you learn about others.

Becoming an exchange student gives you more than knowledge about another country and its language and culture. Time away from home, whether it is a month or a year  teaches you about building friendships, taking responsibility for yourself, respecting differences and tolerating the beliefs of others.

 Exchange students develop leadership skills, self confidence and a greater understanding of the complexities of the world around us. This is why the best universities, as well as corporations and professionals, look favorably on students who have spent a school year abroad. They know that former international exchange students bring a higher level of maturity and a global frame of reference to their university studies and activities.

Is it everything you imagined it would be?Host families feel they benefit from the experience as much as you do! They want to learn about your culture and introduce you to theirs. Many families have children your age.

 Every exchange student has a local  representative who is conversant in English and who will plan some social activities and be available to help you during your stay.

  There's a world out there - what are you waiting for?
