Meet new friends as an exchange student

After a couple of weeks it is very common to get a culture shock. You might feel miss-suited in your new country and that you don’t belong there. It is usually just a period of your year you will feel like this and it is important that you still try to be friendly and happy anyway.

If you are open and friendly you will as an exchange student get many new friends. People are very interested in you and wants to now more about you. You should therefore not be afraid of talking to new people and ask them questions.

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.

Culture shock

Culture shock is very common amongst exchange students. You need to be aware that some things are going to be really different from what you are used to in your home country. You will need to accept this.

Longing back

But after a month you will be back to normal, with usual TV-nights or maybe a night with the computer. It is often then, when you are not doing anything, that you long back to your year as an exchange student.

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.
