Lue 4H vaihtarin terveiset!
Terve – grüezi – hello!
My name is Jennifer and I am from Switzerland. Currently I am taking part in a cultural exchange in Finland which is organized by IFYE. Probably you ask yourself what a cultural exchange is…Well, I have the unique opportunity to live with different families in order to get a better understanding for the finish culture and the way of living.
By being a part of the family, I actively participate in everyday life, including eating together, helping with some work, doing activities and excursions. On the other hand, I share experiences about my culture and customs. But who profits from it? In my opinion it is a win-win situation whereby both parties benefit. My host families and I can improve our language skills, we get a better understanding for foreign cultures and real friendships have developed.
It is an unforgettable way to travel and get to know a country. The exchange was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget!
