Morgan's Trip to Germany Review

My exchange to Germany was the best time of my life. My host family was amazing and I loved the small town I was in because I wasn't that far away from the city but the town was still small enough to make it feel like home. I really bonded with my family and now I consider my host sister just my little sister. Greenheart travel did a good job at answering all of my questions and I'm so thankful I was able to do this. I also got to go on a couple of trips with other exchange students which ended up being two of my favorite trips. I'm really glad they offered those trips to us because I loved being around thirty other people as social and fun-loving as I.

What would you improve about this program?
I would say one major improvement would be to try to offer more language help for people. I know a couple of the other exchange students were in a class and someone said something about a class to me before I left, but I was never enrolled in a language course because no one talked about it again after the one time it was mentioned. Everything ended up being fine but I still wish I could've taken the class to help me learn German.

Five words I would use to describe an Exchange trip to Germany ( Deutschland):

1. Exciting
2. Busy
3. Transformational
4. Postive
5. Endearing

Without this wonderful experience, I would be no where near the place I am today. Germany is an amazing country with an abundance of opportunities for anyone looking to go on exchange. Whether you are into dancing, eating, exercising, socializing, etc. there are opportunities for you. From household to household, warm arms welcome you and generously invite you into their everyday lives. Its an amazing place to love and I would be super supportive of anyone looking to go abroad to Germany!

What would you improve about this program?
More opportunities for exchange sudents to travel throughout the country, since they are already there, and have payed money to go see what the country is all about.
