You’ll fit in immediately and make friends easily. You might have the wrong idea about German culture – you will be surprised by just how friendly and open family life is.
Imagine not having to wear a uniform, finishing school at mid-day, not much homework, and relaxed and approachable teachers. Is that not your dream school? With a short school day, you’ll have time for fun…
There’s lots of opportunities for new friends and hobbies: from horse riding to biking, hiking, skiing, beach life, dancing, music, and sports galore. Don’t forget, the Germans are World Champions at soccer and excel at many other sports – why not get involved?
Go shopping in Berlin, hiking in the Bavarian Alps, or sunbathing on a glorious beach on one of the islands in the Baltic Sea. From fairy tale castles to summer festivals, you will be amazed.
While everyone else learns Spanish or French – you’ll be the standout. As a German speaker you’ll be ready to take advantage of all kinds of opportunities now and in the future, such as free university and great job opportunities. And, for English speakers, German is one of the most approachable foreign languages. Ok, some of those words are a mouthful, but it’s easier to pronounce than many other languages.
As with all our exchanges you can choose to stay and host for between 3 weeks to 3 months, experience a German school or stick to the holidays, the choice is yours. A cultural and language exchange to Germany really is the chance of a lifetime!
