In the first weeks of an exchange it is always important to keep exchange children busy. It helps distract them from feelings of homesickness and gives the exchange pair a great chance to bond. In Antoine's 🇫🇷first weekend in Canada with Stuart 🇨🇦he went to the aquarium, the beach, mini-golfing, laser tag, sight seeing, and played board games with his family.

One of my favorite moments of an exchange is when parents are reunited with their child after 6 months, especially when they travel to pick them up in their foreign county. There is something magical about seeing your child in their new life, speaking their new language, meeting their loving family, and letting your child be your personal tour guide! Kieri 🇺🇸 was all smiles when reuniting with her family but sad to leave her loving home of France. Evangeline will soon be joining Kieri in the USA for the second half of their exchange. #exchangefamiliesinternational #exchange #exchangeprogram #international #internationalexchange #france #canada #germany #spain #usa #unitedstates #adventure #travel #traveling #explore #love #efi #flight #linguistic #friendship
