Summer 2016 Participant
Living with a host family was a fantastic way to hone my everyday use of the German language, as well as get an in-depth understanding of the German culture.

Something that I would recommend to future students:"Speak German whenever you can, which is always!"
Erin Ray Ann Christiansen, Summer 2012 Participant
The experience of living with a host family was very special I thought. The ability to live with an actual family was a great way to be immersed into the culture. It also made my experience more comfortable to live with a family and made me really feel at home in the new country. My family taught me a lot about German culture and everyday ways of life.
