Six week program

Want an introduction to a new culture and country? This summer exchange program may be perfect for you. Six weeks gives you the opportunity to connect to a new family and dip your toes into living abroad. You will spend up to six weeks in your new home and one month hosting your exchange partner. This program is great for children who do not have time to be away from home for long periods due to other commitments or are not ready to commit to a full linguistic program.



Costs €1000 | $1500USD | $1800 CAD     plus 5% tax

Three month program

Six months together in total and up to three months living in each country. Children in this program have the opportunity to go to school, enroll in activities, and integrate into their new family. Three months is enough time to get a good linguistic base and a feel for how you live in another culture. This program is more flexible for departure times throughout the year but most exchanges do start in September and February.

Costs €2000 | $2500 USD | $2800 CAD    plus 5% tax

Six month program

One year spent together, up to six months in each country. This is our most popular program as even children with no foreign language skills can gain fluency in a new language. Each child will spend a full school semester in another country and become part of a new family. Children who spend this much time together will have a strong bond for life and will often continue to visit each other over the years.
