7f Exchanges and home stays
The single most effective way of understanding a different country, culture or language is to experience it first hand. Given our dependence on a global economy, an understanding of the wider world has never been more important. An exchange visit involving the placing of young people in a family home stay setting has traditionally been seen as one of the best ways of enabling this.
These experiences help young people to develop self-esteem, self-confidence and independence, while developing their knowledge base and broadening their horizons. Staying with a host family gives young people both an insight into the culture and a first hand opportunity to use their language skills in a real context.
