HOSTING A FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT

 

 

Who Is a Foreign Exchange Student? A FES is a student from another part of the world who temporarily becomes a member of your family, sharing experiences, traditions, and a whole lot of stories. It’s not just about offering a spare room; it’s an invitation to embrace a slice of the world in your everyday life. Sound interesting right?
