I had an awesome time on my French Adolesco exchange. I went for 8 weeks and my exchange sister came for 4. By the end, we were great friends. When my exchange sister was here, I gave her a lot of my time. She came along to most of the things I normally do. We also went to the Grand Canyon with my cousins and to an amusement park with roller coasters, which are rare in France.
In France we traveled around a lot and spent a lot of time in my French grandmother’s garden. We went water-skiiing and spent a weekend in Paris. I ate everything even if I didn’t like it, because that’s pleasing to the parents. By the end of the exchange I could understand almost everything people were saying and I could speak very well in the present tense.
On an exchange you should do whatever you can to help, and smile a lot because it makes people like you and it’s easier for your international family. If you do that, you will have an amazing time.
