This program was started by Sigliende Warren, and has an 11-day commitment with students living with local families. So far, 108 students, 16 teachers, 15 news articles and 180 parents have been involved in the program.
Students are responsible for speaking English, attending school and doing whatever the host-student does. Students learn about the area, traditions and the fact that movies do not accurately depict either German or American society.
