A Year to Last a Lifetime
Submitted by Jamie Bowers - Edmonton | January 19, 2018
This past year I've spent in Canada has been incredible. I've seen so much beauty here. I've met many incredible people and made friends for life. InterExchange made the process and transition to work and travel in Canada smooth. I would definitely go through the program again. It has been a year that I will never forget!

More Than Expected
Submitted by Greta - Woodbridge | January 17, 2018
Before I left for my year abroad everyone I spoke with said it would change my life. I felt intimidated by the prospect of having to change my life in a new country over the course of a year. I shouldn't have worried. The changes were small and subtle and took place without my noticing.
I recommend this program to anyone who is interested in a year abroad. The Netherlands is a beautiful and underappreciated country in Europe. I spent many weekends exploring its wonderful cities and learning more about its culture. On top of its own incredible countryside it is also centrally located in Europe. During my year I was able to visit 15 countries. Many of those were by a short train ride or even shorter plane trips. I met interesting people in each city I visited and I made memories that I will cherish forever.
Some of the most important memories I made were with my host family. They made me part of there family. I spent countless hours laughing and celebrating each day with them. Even with all of the travel and new experiences, they are what I miss most of all.
This year was incredible. Travel changes you.

Two Months Immersed in Catalonia
Submitted by Kaila Young - York | January 16, 2018
My experience as a Teaching Assistant in Llica d'Amunt, Spain was undoubtedly one of my life's best. I lived with a host family who completely matched my personality and interests. They showed me around Catalonia and the surrounding areas, and took me on adventures that I have never attempted solo. I was nervous for teaching because my degree is in writing, not education, and my work experience involved mostly elementary-age children, while I was placed at a high school. However, in the end, I was very grateful to work with teenagers because I bonded with many and felt that I had a significant impact on them. My work schedule was light, so I had abundant time to take day trips, go for runs in the nearby woods, and spend time with my host family. Overall, I would highly recommend the Teaching Assistant program to anyone interested in travel, teaching, and learning.

Au Pair Australia
Submitted by Elizabeth Korbich - Sunbury | January 16, 2018
Working as an au pair in Australia was one of the best experiences of my life. The family that I lived with was amazing. They were so warm and welcoming from day one and the kids were absolutely adorable. I could not have enjoyed my experience more. The company did a wonderful job making me feel safe and secure during my travels and they had great opportunists to meet other au pairs and make new friends. I lived in Sydney, Australia for a year and I just absolutely loved it. I am hoping to return for graduate school next year. I had no idea I would fall so completely in love with the country and I can't wait to get back!
