Student Exchange

Are you looking to:
• Experience another culture?
• Make new friends?
• Improve your language studies at home?

Host families needed in June/July 2013
In June/July 2013 Student Exchange Australia New Zealand Ltd will be receiving exchange students from Europe, Canada, the USA and Latin America. Our new arrivals will live with a host family and attend a local school for 2-10 months. We are keen to hear from suitable families who might be interested to host a student. It’s a great way for them to learn about a new country and share an unforgettable experience with the entire family!
Host families come in all shapes and sizes, backgrounds and ages. Hosting an exchange student can be a truly rewarding experience. It allows a family to experience a foreign culture first hand, be exposed to a new language and pass on a bit of our own culture. They might even make a friend for life!

“Becoming a Host family for an international student has been much more than we expected. We thought it would be great for our kids to learn a little about another language and maybe something about another country. Instead, we gained another family member and some great new friends, her parents from Germany. We get to show off our country and learn so much about hers. What a fantastic experience for all of us.”
