Best summer of my life!

This program exceeded my expectations! Ashley was very helpful answering questions before I left the US and the Italian camp coordinators made us feel right at home from the second we were picked up for Macerata. I had no previous teaching experience nor a TEFL, TESL, etc. We were given a guide with lessons and activities, but also the flexibility to incorporate our own ideas to make English fun for each age group. It was very rewarding at the end of each camp to see the progress and hear positive feedback from parents. On our off time, we explored our cities, took day and weekend trips and spent time with our host families. I made great friends from all over the world and I can't wait to visit my host families again. If I have the opportunity, I hope to participate in this program in the future!

Working In Canada through InterExchange

I took a year between my undergrad and grad school to live and work in Canada. Throughout the summer, I worked at a marina. I had a great experience working with boaters and cottagers around the area. As winter approaches, I plan to begin applying to other jobs for the remainder of my stay.

As for InterExchange, the program is amazing. It is so difficult to get a work visa because of sponsorship requirements. InterExchange made the process quick and easy. Their staff is extremely helpful and is always available to answer questions about the application process. Additionally, they have made themselves available to me even after I've moved with various questions I've had. Everything about my experience with InterExchange has been great. They simplify the process of being able to live and work in a different country and give you the opportunity to travel while also having a means to support yourself.

Best 6 weeks of my life

This program introduced me to a family in which I was a conversation coach for. This family and I have become extremely close. They have taught me so much...just as much as I've tried to teach them. The kids were so wonderful. The family and I did everything together and it felt like a second home. There were no issues with having the kids talk to me and work on their English. We didn't plan out specific times for tutoring...we just went day to day hanging out and exploring Germany. I can tell the biggest different between when I first arrived and when I was ready to leave.

I even went on vacation to France with the family. We did so many things together and I became part of the family. It was one of the best experiences of my whole life. The whole family will always have a special place in my heart and I know I will come visit them again.

The whole process is worth it! Everyone at InterExchange was unbelievably helpful and so kind. All of my questions and concerns were answered. It was the best possible experience I could have.

Teaching in Thailand

This was an experience of a lifetime! I met a lot of people from the program that I still keep in touch with. I also have met locals who I still keep in touch with. The best advice I can give is to be open to the Thai culture. Keep in mind you are a visitor/tourist and not from USA. Assimilate yourself and you'll have a great time!

Working holiday in Canada

I have been living it up in Canada since getting approved for my visa through InterExchange. I found myself living Whistler, BC. They call it "never-never land" because people seem to stop aging here. There have been days that I have been snowboarding and sunbathing in the same day, followed by drinks with friends. The nightlife and wildlife leave nothing to be desired. I have been very please with my experience overall.
Most people are shocked when they find out I am American and I got a work visa for Canada. Even though we share a huge border, it takes a little research to the visa. I chose InterExchange because of their rates and availability to help out and answer questions. If you meet all of the age and school requirements the rest is easy. James at InterExchange helped me along the way and has always been friendly and prompt to answer all of my questions. I am looking forward to traveling through their services in the future.
