If you’re still undecided about making the commitment to spending a school year abroad, ASSE’s Summer Homestay or European Summer Language programs offer the perfect solution.
You’ll get a firsthand experience with another country’s culture and way of life, and you’ll be able to improve your foreign language skills dramatically! (In some countries we can place you in a family where English is spoken as a second language.)
You may choose from a list of countries for a short–term exchange experience during the months of July and August.
At present, ASSE works closely with the Canadian provincial education ministries and is approved by the Ministry of Education in New Zealand. ASSE maintains 38 offices in 31 countries and accommodates more than 30,000 high school age students and host families annually in its programs in the participating countries.
Having studied a foreign language is certainly helpful, but not essential. Most important is a sense of adventure and a serious commitment to learning the language and becoming an active participant in the family, school and community life of your chosen country. It’s an experience you will remember and cherish for the rest of your life.
