At International Experience, we believe that learning about other cultures, languages, and customs is the best way to dispel prejudices and embrace global citizenship.

“My name is Pia and I'm 15 years old. I am from Austria and I really like drawing and reading. I also go kickboxing. I take two kickboxing lessons every week and one horseback riding lesson each week. I would really love to live with pets or other animals and be able to care for them. (e.g. to feed them). Animals are able to help people in difficult situations, with their love and joy, and that is why I enjoy them so much. Doing an exchange year will be a great experience for me, because I will get to know other cultures and share new experiences. I think it is very important to be open minded, especially for young people, and I hope to be open minded during this experience. Besides that, this experience will improve me English, when I come back when I am older.”

“I’m Martin. I am 15-years-old and I am from Spain. A little about me is that I am a very optimistic and positive person, extroverted and educated. My hobbies are spending time with my family and friends, watching and playing sports, and playing video games. My goals in my exchange year are to improve my English, to live and to know the American culture and to meet many people. 

I would like for you to know that I am very interested in learning about American culture, and that I am very respectful and cannot wait to learn about your life and your family habits.”

“Hi, I am Jannik. I'm 17 years old and from Germany. I love photography, and I prefer to take pictures of landscapes and nature. I believe that my helpful and empathetic manner is because of my parents. I’m a reliable person, and my friends say that I’m a self-confident, authentic guy with a good sense of humor.

I‘m interested in gaining experience through a foreign culture. I like the American culture most and I hope to improve my English skills. I have overcome many challenges and I would love to find a supportive Host Family that is welcoming. I can’t wait to meet my new family.”
