Travelmate USA is launching the new Mix Program for 2014!! Now you can study in two different cities during your High School year in the United States.
Being an exchange student is a wonderful thing. I have learned so many things during my exchange year and I learned a lot about my personality. I did the Mix Program. I started my program in Orlando and I had a wonderful time. My host family was very nice to me and I experienced the way to live with an American family. At the beginning it was a big difference but after a while you get used to it and you really enjoy it. They took me out a lot and I went with them to Universal Studios and Disney World about every weekend as my host father worked for Disney. Going to school is a lot of fun too. The people from school are all nice and very interested in you because you are unique at your school and they don't get to meet so many foreign people. After 5 months I moved to Miami and my whole life changed again. I had new people around me again and a new family too. But Miami is a big difference compared to Orlando and I love both cities. I made really good friends in Miami too and I see them every weekend and we always go to South Beach together So all in all it is a wonderful thing to be an exchange student and you can see your life from a whole different way. And you are the one who can decide what kind of experience you are going to have. You can have a good or a bad experience it's all up to you to make the best out of it. Use the time wisely because this time has a limit and the time home will be always there for you.
