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!

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.

    Hi Nick, Wow! What a review. Thanks so much for your thoughts. We know the visa process is tricky and it is our goal to demystify it for everyone. Glad it worked well for you and we look forward to being in touch! ~InterExchange

The best decision I've made so far

I absolutely had a blast in New Zealand. Inter exchange helped out it more way than I thought! They also taught me a lot. Great service and definitely worth it! I know now that I will retire in New Zealand one day :)
