Jana: It was such a great time and I think everyone should take part in such a programme, if they get the chance to do so. It was pretty funny and cool to experience another family’s lifestyle and to learn more about their country. I think this exchange definitely changed me in relation to openness and independence.
Michelle: This exchange was probably one of my most important experiences! I’ve met amazing people and I got to know another culture the best way possible – what else could you ask for? I am so glad I was able to take part in this programme and I hope many more students will be able to share a similar experience.
Sarah: This year‘s exchange program with Dexter High School, Michigan, was a real highlight for all 11 of us. We got to see a lot of Dexter and Detroit with the other exchange partners or with our host families. We all made friends with great kids and we hope those friendships will last for a long time after the exchange.
Patrick: I enjoyed the last 10 days very much and it was a enrichment to all of us. We improved our English and experienced a new culture.
Daria: The student exchange was a really good chance to get to know a new culture better and to compare the American lifestyle with the German lifestyle. It also was really interesting to attend another school and to see what’s different and to find out if they learn something else than we do. And actually they learn the same things, just a little bit slowlier, but there are also subjects which we don’t have, for example Health. I‘d really like to go to Dexter again because I made new friends, had a lot of fun und made new, cool experiences.
Diana: In my opinion these 10 days were absolutely amazing. I was able to make new friends and I got to know the American culture better. I am already looking forward to the time that we are going to spend together in June.
Oliver: The time we spent with our exchange partners was fantastic. It was a great experience and it was very interesting to see how the Americans live. I hope that lots of younger pupils will get the chance to have a wonderful time there, too.
Johanna: An exchange is an unforgettable experience where you can make friends with people from another culture. I would recommend taking part in an exchange to everybody.
Schorschi: I really liked our exchange in the USA. Especially staying at another family‘s house was a great experience.
Leonie: The exchange with America was a great experience and I really enjoyed it. I tried many different things I had never tried before. I would recommend taking part in an exchange to every student who has the chance to do visit another country.
Hannah: We really enjoyed experiencing a new culture and getting to know fantastic people. I am really looking forward to meeting my exchange partner again in June, but I already miss her, even if we had to say goodbye only a few hours ago.
I think everyone should take the unique opportunity of doing that exchange to improve his or her English and to get to know new people and a new country.
Host mothers keep posting very kind parting remarks. I would like to share two of them with you:
