Taking in an exchange student is a great and unique experience! Not only are you giving a young, brave person the chance to get to know German culture, you are also supporting their personal development and their growing independence. The host families also learn a lot during this exchange –about a new culture but also a lot about their own. Cultural encounters in one’s own home are so important, if only for the fact that one learns to understand what connects people. No matter how different another culture might be and no matter how much you get to know about a foreign country, nothing connects people like shared day to day life. Student exchange brings together people who want to learn from each other and, through the cultural exchange, create something new that they can share – perhaps it is precisely these friendships that ultimately hold the world together.
