Program Reviews:
Catherine X Martin, Summer 2014 Participant
I found the improvement of speaking German the most rewarding because it allowed me to bond with the host family and community in a more intimate way.

Nicholas Joel Matherson, Summer 2012 Participant
The people. Getting to know the kids in my group as well as my host family was an experience like no other. Being isolated in a foreign country halfway across the world really brings young adults close together - even the awkward ones - who knew! Also, really feeling like part of the family when you wake up in the morning and eat breakfast with the siblings and parents was an experience that helped me gain new perspective on my real family back home and myself.

Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of this program was experiencing the culture during the two weeks of travel around Germany.
