One of the best experiences of my life

I honestly had no idea what to expect, I just knew that I wanted to teach abroad. Since, I had just graduated I knew that it was going to have to be though the Internet that I found an opportunity, and because of that, I was unsure of how well the places and the people could truly be vetted. But I knew just from my contact with Interexchange that it would be fine enough-little did I know just how fine. I could not have been placed with a better family or school, and my time there was everything I could've hoped for. My family was a very active, but down to earth family, that did their best to make me feel truly at home. While my head teacher literally took me by the hand on the first day and showed me around to all the kids who were so excited to see this new, foreign person. I stayed in a small little, untouched town called San Lorenzo al Mare, and it was fantastic. Without a doubt, I would recommend this program to anyone who thinks their interested in doing something out of their comfort zone and wanting to meet people that are impossible to forget.

Best program ever

The whole process was easy and the trip was the best traveling experience ever. The staff at Interexchange and Maximo Nivel are helpful and friendly. I had a wonderful experience in Guatemala and would highly recommend the program. I really enjoyed living with a host family and living with them; they felt like my real family. The classes were extremely rewarding, learning Spanish is fun and I was impressed with how dedicated the teachers are. Overall great experience.

Hobbit training

If it hadn't been for the assistance provided with InterExchange, I wouldn't have been willing to pack up and move to New Zealand for a year. It was great having them as a resource--especially since it allowed me to live in a beautiful country.

Teaching English in Italy

I had an amazing experience teaching English in Italy. First of all the company I went through, Interexchange, was amazing. They had everything organized and responded to all my questions immediately and effectively. My program manager was so supportive even when I was nervous. Their professionalism really helped everything go smoothly! Second I had a great host family! They were very welcoming and wanted me to feel as comfortable as possible. It was a perfect balance of keeping a normal routine, like me going to the gym, and being exposed to a new culture. Working in the schools was great! The students and teachers were so welcoming! I did have one rough situation with a classroom but when I told the teacher in charge she was extremely understanding and came up we a solution right away. On the review I gave the school an 8 because the schedule was confusing and I often had a lot of transition time in between my days that made my days unnecessarily long. In the overall experience even the few complaints are very insignificant. I loved being a part of the community but also being able to do fun touristy things!

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!
