First impressions as an exchange student

The first impression upon arrival to your new country will always be very special. However, the feelings will vary greatly from person-to-person. Many people feel incredible joy and excitement but there are others who start crying in fear and wondering “What have I done?”.

Meet friends

Don’t be scared of calling people if they want to hang out. It is just a way to make them feel interested as well and almost every time they will help you get into the friendship-gangs.

Parent information

When your own child is about to go away for a whole year, everything is about the exchange student, it isn’t many that think that it is an incredibly large difference for the parents.

Host family

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