This past summer, I got the once in a lifetime opportunity to go to Europe. A study abroad program, called International Experience, found me a host family in Germany that invited me to stay with them for two weeks. None of this would have happened if it wasn’t for my Chinese host brother Andy. My family hosted Andy for the spring 2014 semester and he attended our high school. Andy was truly as joy for my family and had a huge influence on my family and his classmates. His experience inspired me to do the same, and travel. I soon had a host family in Germany from the help of iE-USA and I was on my way!
I went to Germany with almost no knowledge of the language, but luckily, my host sister Elli went to a bilingual school and had near perfect English. My family welcomed me to their home with a homemade cake that had my name on it in German colors and made me really feel at home.
I was also extremely fortunate to be in Germany for most of the World Cup. Read the rest of this entry
This summer there are opportunities to learn Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, or French while staying with a host family in another country. You could decide to volunteer with turtles in Costa Rica or whales in Argentina, or learn how to Tango! It’s not too late to apply, even for graduating seniors. Make this summer memorable!
