Tyler Michael Smith, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of this program was the experience of living with a host family. My host family did an incredible job of making me feel like I was part of the family. They took every opportunity to immerse me in the German culture and help me with my language skills. They were extremely patient in the beginning when my speech was not so good. They were fun, caring, and engaged with both my studies and my interests. They were always there to help me and always will be. My host family considers me now a part of the family. At the conclusion of my six week study in Eutin, my host family told me that their door is always open for me to visit, for which I plan to do as often as I can. There was nothing more amazing than having the wonderful opportunity to be a part of this experience, and leave with friends and family for life.

The cultural and relational experiences were very rewarding. I enjoyed getting to know the host families, making friends with my fellow students and locals, exploring the local cultural offerings, and of course getting the chance to learn a language while being immersed in it and the society it built up.

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.
