Hosting an exchange student with EF High School Exchange Year is rewarding in so many ways- here are three of our favorites!
1. Hosting a student brings your family closer together. You spend more time with each other because you’re sharing your life with a new family member.
2. If you have children of your own, hosting an exchange student introduces them to other cultures and opens their eyes to the world.
3. If you choose to host a student who shares your own cultural heritage, it’s an amazing way to connect with your family history.
