The foreign exchange effect

This week we received a new foreign exchange student. This is our second time doing the program for the entire school year. When I started this program a couple of years ago I thought we were doing it for the benefit of the foreign exchange students, but I’ve learned it’s the other way around. Besides learning about other cultures, these students bring such a drive to learn and succeed here in the United States for their short time here. And I love how they are pushing themselves out of their comfort zones to do it. I consider all of those qualities fantastic, and want my children to strive for them as well. The example these students bring into my home is so appreciated I would recommend every family trying it while their kids are in high school.
