I enjoyed everything because I had lots of new experiences with my host family. It was hard to speak naturally, for example, it was hard to pronounce some words like “World” because those have difficult parts like “RL” My host family experience was wonderful because my host family did let me experience lots of things. The school was wonderful because I made lots of wonderful friends. My favourite subject was gym class because I could play lots of news sports. In the community, I joined a U-19 soccer team and it was so much fun. My local coordinator usually met and talked with me once per month which was so helpful and she was amazing! My advice to future students is there are many great and wonderful experiences. Don’t be afraid, be positive and keep smiling.
