My parents have had, I think, 5-7 exchange students, all at different times. The one we visit the most is the one who was here when I was born. Have any of you ever had that experience?

No, but that sounds really cool. I might do that when I have kids.

my parents tried to exchange me, but nobody would take me.. it was so traumatic! it would be an interesting experience to host an exchange student.

My friend hosted a exchange student and he's still here now. We always joke around with him because in the US he's a senior in HS but in Germany he's a sophmore.

hmm does that count as yes?

It's when usually a student from another country comes to live with you or someone for a certain amount of time. They essentially learn a new culture and lifestyle.

And in most cases, a new laguage. The only problem with it is, it can be very expensive if you wish to be a paart of it.

Oh, then I already knew what it was. I just didn't know what it was called.

My parents wanted to send me to either Korea or China but then I said "Who will take care of the fish?" So I got out of it.

Good excuse.

My grandparents had a couple of exchange students years ago. They still keep in touch sometimes. I think both of them were from Japan. My senior year of HS we had one in our class from Chile, he was pretty cool.

My grandparents lived near a university, and probably had literally dozens of exchange students live with them before they retired and moved out of the city. I only remember some of them, but I still have a book one of them gave me as a present. My grandparents get a slew of very foreign holiday cards every year too, which was just great when I went through my stamp collecting phase as a kid! They also love to travel, and conveniently have people to visit in a good number of the countries they visit! I accompanied them to Japan when I was a teenager, and it took us a week and a half to visit all of their former exchange students there!
