Lesson #2: Always carry a dictionary especially when you are in a country where the language is not the same.
Lesson #3: If you really want something (such as a trip to another country), your effort and your commitment are the keys for what you really want.
Lesson #4: Never be afraid to dream big and make those dreams come true.
Lesson #5: When you go to another country inform yourself as much as you can about the people’s culture within that country, such as their customs/habits and what they think is offensive and not offensive.
Lesson #6: Student exchanges are much more than going to a country and meeting people, it’s going to another country in the world where they will teach you who they are, and becoming part of a very distinct family from yours. That’s what makes these exchanges amazing and unforgettable.
