Jacob Albert Ellenberger, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of this program was living with my host family. We bonded very early on and I felt like a part of the family. In terms of education, cultural experience, and fun, this is the most important aspect of the trip. Living in a host family meant fully embracing a culture and language different than my own, and learning to adapt and thrive in uncomfortable circumstances.

When it comes to your host family, expect nothing and appreciate everything, and you'll be very happy.

When you take German at a university in the States you get a pretty decent grasp of the practical application (reading, writing, speaking, hearing) but when you study abroad you see what you can potentially do with that skill.
