About Exchange Student World

The day has come...scary?!

When the day arrives and it’s time to take off, you will probably feel intense, excited and nervous. You will ask yourself if you’ve got your passport, visa and credit card at least 100 times. 

It’s usually at the airport when it it hits you. “I’m going to be away for a whole year!” It might be scary at first, but you will meet up with other exchange students that are in exactly the same situation and feeling exactly the same way. Everyone may not be comfortable talking about their feelings, but you won’t be alone.

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.

What is an exchange student?

Exchange students are usually students in high school or post-secondary systems of education who leave their home countries to spend anywhere between a few weeks and an entire year within a foreign country.

Host family

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