Exchange Student Testimonial – Quest Exchange 2010

“At the beginning of my first year I was a bit scared about the new school in a foreign country but my school welcomed me like they do with anyone no matter where they come from. People were extremely nice and eager to know about you and befriend you. Also I had some doubts about picking up the books or where to go to choose my classes but Quest is always there to help. Fortunately I had a wonderful coordinator who was always there to help. At the end of my second and last year I felt blessed about all the friends that I have, my wonderful host family and all the stuff that I have learned out and inside of the school.

“Quest Exchange took time to learn about me so that they could find a perfect match for me during my time studying abroad. From the every beginning they answered all my questions and made my parents feel safe sending off to another country. This Quest program placed me with an amazing host family (my host sister became like a real sister to me) in an amazing location and school.

“You should participate in a Quest program so that you can learn first-hand, through immersion, the culture of another country. Quest’s deadlines aren’t ridiculously far, like many other programs- I finished my application in October, and was flying to Europe in January.

“It will be so great to get to go back home and know something a little more about a different country. Being able to speak another language is such a great advantage. And it’s also great to know more about other cultures, instead of just reading about the country in a geography book. I’m really glad I decided to study here for a year.”

“The Quest program is an excellent way to get out into the world, see new things, and meet new people. These experiences will always be with you and you will meet people who will forever be part of your life.

“Quest is one of the most efficient partners we are working with. All of the contacts are very responsive and supportive to our inquiries from student applications throughout the program. Our students and their parents are quite happy with their schools and host families, and that encourages us to send more students to Quest.”

“Fox Valley Lutheran High School (FVL) has had a wonderful partnership with Quest Exchange for a number of years. We are always happy to host Quest’s international students and know that they will work throughout the school year to ensure the student has a successful cultural experience. They are a very organized group that truly cares about the students and has their best interests at heart.”

“I hosted a male student from Madrid Spain for the 2011-2012 Academic year through Quest Exchange. My son and I enjoyed hosting him for the school year. Our student learned the American culture, the English language, the American school system and all about our family. The best part of all is that he truly became a member of our family and a life long friend! My thirteen year old son learned all about the Spanish culture and he now is looking forward to visiting Spain in the near future. Thank you Quest for this amazing cultural experience.”

“Quest Exchange is an outstanding organization. The staff is phenomenal. From the knowledgeable person who answers the phone, to Shayna who is outstanding, I can depend on the entire staff to take care of Notre Dame Academy students. I continue to be impressed by the students Quest brings to Notre Dame Academy. We look forward to continuing our strong working relationship with Quest in the years to come.”

“Studying abroad was one of the biggest experiences in my life and I have changed a lot through studying abroad. 🙂 Not only learning a foreign language but it was also a good chance to learn different cultures. I had some prejudice about other countries but living from America helped me to get along with people from different countries. I know that it is really big decision to study abroad. However, you can learn many things if you have open mind and courage.”
