Free time is the right time for discoveries. Explore your host country and go on outings and participate in other activities. You can practice your favorite sport, and find new interests and hobbies. In some countries there are lots of alternatives in connection to the school. In other countries you have to make your own arrangements. Your host family, contact person or new classmates will certainly be able to show you some good and exciting alternatives.
Join a football club, try out a new sport, sing in a band, play in a chess tournament, practice with a carnival group, chill out with friends in a café. The main thing is that you blend in, that you connect with people and use your leisure time well. And you will of course have a lot of assistance from your host family. They will take you places, to visit friends and family, to local events and on trips to explore the area around you.
We will also arrange STS travel options for you within the country. This might be round trips that are both fun and interesting. Like a trip to the excotic Hawaii if you are in the USA, a beautiful snowboard weekend if you are in Austria or a visit to Rome if you are in Italy. We also arrange our extraordinary road trips. All exchange students in the USA can join the very popular Coast to Coast road trip that takes you all across the country with many interesting stops.
