Community for high school exchange students and host families.

About Exchange Student World

Is there a good exchange student?

There is not one sort of person who is more suitable than another.

Of course it’s easier if you are happy, outgoing, open minded and find it easy to adjust to new situations. But, to be an exchange student is not about who you are right now, it’s about who you will become. You may be shy in your home country, but when you go to another place you will grow as a person and take huge steps in your personal development.

Pack for a year

To pack for a whole year might feel like a tough task. But it is actually not as hard as it sounds. There are though some things you should think about before you start.

Host family

Most host families do it because they are interested in learning about other countries and cultures. Be prepared to share yours!

Awareness

Overly high expectations, combined with a bad beginning with your host parents or school, could be a catastrophic combination!
