Were you able to get an idea or preview your host families and homes? Or did you go in blind?

I was Au pair in Ireland and enjoyed the experience of living with a host family (thought I wouldn't be as brave without knowing we speak the others language well).

I’m thinking of applying to be an exchange student in Germany and staying with a host family, but I have ANXIETY and can make a situation awkward😅 I’m scared to be with a host family😬 any tips, or something?

Hey Ella, I definitely understand your concerns. Having a good or suitable host family definitely makes a world of difference in terms of the experience. However, I wouldn’t let these concerns discourage you from going for the exchange program. 😊 Maybe it would help you to know that I had anxiety too before my first exchange program, but it all worked out well in the end. I think it would be much less “awkward” if there are also other students staying in the same host family as you are. Is there maybe an option for that? It’s also not bad at all being alone there because most of the time you have lots of space and time for yourself... there doesn’t have to be a ton of interactions if you’re not comfortable with it. I know how hard it is to overcome anxiety and to just go for something but you should open yourself up to new experiences if not you might regret it 🙂

It depends on the duration and whether or not they’re responsible for cooking your meals as well so I can’t give you a single direct answer

Well concerning the going away for vacation and leaving the house to you and your friend: there is this thing called trust. German Education System and german parents tend to trust their children to be able to take care of themselves (and a house) at a quite early age. Reason is the way German children are raised, early to take on responsibilities, raised to be independent as early as possible. So two grown up girls coming to study are just considered capable of taking care of a house. That’s not bizzare, it’s just German thinking.

Give the first family a call, see if you can meet up for a day, and impress them with your German. I'm sure they'd love to witness your progress first hand.
Perados Vor year
Ohh, no matter how kind your German families have been, I hope you asked everyone if you can show pictures of their homes (outside and inside). Especially to show a picture of the child's face. Germans can become really uncomfortable if someone shares "private data" with the public. To share pictures of children unasked on Facebook, DE-vid, Instagram, or even WhatsApp status is a big no go.

You could always ask your host family for their FB details, that way it wouldn`t be so formal and you could keep up with their lives that way and they with yours !

PS- and the Germans are mostly honest and also trusting.. l left my mobile phone once in a restarant and worried that someone could have taken it, but no when l returned,around 45 minutes later it was still on the chair where l`d left it, l`m sure in England it would have been nicked within 10 minutes ! Another time an elderly lady, who l didn`t know, struck up a conversation, suddenly she told me she had to go to the ladies and immediately vanished down a flight of stairs while leaving her handbag on the table next to me !! SO trusting, it can restore your faith in humanity!

I am wondering why you were confused by that second host family just leaving you while going on holidays. Do you think that you make such a distrustful appearance that people should better not leave you alone? Or were your friends people you cant' trust?

I get what she meant. I think that's because she's just a stranger and the family knew her not long enough. To me she doesn't have distrustful appearance. At least in asia usually you trust your house to relatives/anyone from your family or someone who is very close to you

As you have learned german you are probably familiar with the concept of cases: Nominativ, Akkusativ etc. My friend and I lived in the first flour, but our host mother cared or my friend and me. On youtube you find even american native english speakers who are not aware of the difference.

I noticed that several times you used the pronoun, 'I', when you should have said, 'me'. The video was very good and positive, though.

Glad. Home stay is always comfortable, If anyone would like to experiences in #Nepal, Comfort Homestay in Kathamandu would be great.

OMGOSH Yes! She reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite. Plus I had it on 1.5 speed, so it amplified it much more. I know it's not her fault, but it annoyed me a bit, but I just had to realize it was all me. I do enjoy her videos tho.

@muhammad adil Singaporean speaks what we called it "Singlish" accent and you can spot them from a mile away with their pronunciation, everything sounds Chinese but if u listen carefully they are actually speaking English and some of the sentences end with lar, har, na, (fun fact) if you live in Singapore for a long time, you probably ended up losing your proper English accent. :D cheer
