Rules for an Exchange Student

As an exchange student in a new country you will have to adjust to a whole new and different things like culture and rules. It is often the last that is the hardest, to learn to live and accept the new rules that your host family is setting up. USA is a country built on these, there are exactly everywhere in the US, and they will affect you on a everyday basis.

E.g on your High School, there are many rules that you never could have imagined in your own country, in some cases you maybe have to wear a school uniform, in other places, it can be a dresscode, you´ll have to dress according to a set of rules. Maybe the town your in have a curfew for anyone under 18.

As an exchange student, you will right away meet these rules. Some of them will make you frighten first time you´ll see them.
