    I go to a boarding high school and I am friendly, but not friends, with a foreign exchange student who needs a place to stay for a week or more during a break later in the school year. She doesn't have many options in terms of where she could go but I'm not sure if I should let her come or not. She can be quite loud and obnoxious and I'm worried that my family might get annoyed with her and I might have to end up babysitting her. She also doesn't always make smart decisions in terms of drinking and doing drugs so I'm worried I would get involved in something that I don't. I don't get to see my family or friends very often so I was looking forward to having quality rime with them, but I couldn't since I would have to watch and entertain my guest. I want to be a good person and bring her home, but I just don't know if it's worth it. Any advice? Thanks so much!

    I have a B.S. degree in Psychology from a traditional 4-year university in America. I'm 26 years old now and I want to try something different! I'd love to go back to school to study textiles or photography but I want to do it in England. I don't even know if this is possible! Money isn't a concern for me; I just want to do something different and exciting with my life now while I'm young and single. While I'm studying abroad I would want to have a part time job, perhaps in a boutique or cafe. Is it possible for an American with a bachelor's degree to go back to school and study a different field in England? How would I go about it? Thanks!

    Best answer: I'd go for Sweden, because, as you say, it will give you the opportunity to visit more different places and that's worthwhile when you'll be there a long time.

    Best answer: Speaking as a former exchange student, any of these countries will be interesting. I did exchanges of varying lengths in Mexico, Brazil, and England. Brazil and England were my favorites, but all of these trips were very special and enriched my life.

    If you know basic Polish, this country might be the easiest. I have not been there, but it looks nice on TV. I think that they like Americans, which is important when you are living outside of your country. I think people there are very conservative, so decide if this appeals to you. It's most likely very historic there, but I don't know enough about this country.

    France is lovely and very historic. There are castles, palaces, and churches everywhere. There are hundreds of museums with very famous works of art. The food is amazing. It is easy to travel by bus or by train. French is a little hard to learn, but many people there speak English. You can pick up French by watching TV. People in Paris are not the friendliest, but they are nicer in towns further out from the capital. The climate varies by which part of the country you live in. The southern part by the Mediterranean Sea is very tropical.

    Spain is also very historic and is reputed to have excellent food. Spanish is an excellent foreign language to know if you live in the U.S. It can help you in your career because many schools, businesses, and government jobs want someone who knows Spanish fluently. I have not been to Spain, but I have met Spanish people. They are very proud of their country. They seem to like Americans and probably know some English. They try to ensure that kids enjoy themselves, but you will have to avoid those who party too much. The weather seems to be generally mild / warm.

    Spanish and French have similar grammar rules and sentence structures because they are both Romance languages, but they are pronounced differently. I think that Spanish might be a little easier because it has fewer silent letters and fewer words that sound alike but are spelled differently. If you learn French first, then Spanish will be easy to learn later. And, the reverse is also true. I would never say that Polish is useless to learn, but it won't have the same effect on your future job prospects as Spanish would. French, while not as desirable, would also help you in your career.

    Last, if Brazil is an option, it is an awesome country in which to do a youth exchange. The people are fun-loving and like Americans. You can learn Portuguese from watching TV and just listening. This language is similar to Spanish, Italian, and French, and it can help you to learn any of them. School is only a half day, unless the family buys you a second session. Food is generally good and there are a lot of delicious fruits. The culture is youth-oriented. Some cities have beaches, while others do not. There are nicer cities than Rio and Sao Paulo (too big and too much crime), but these are the cities that most Americans have heard of. Carnaval is so much fun and differs according to the region in which you live. There is a culture there that Americans would consider sexual harassment, but it is something to learn about and know. I was in the city of Ribeirão Prêto and the village of Sertãozinho in the state of São Paulo. It was one of my best years ever.

    I am a Canadian high school student who is yet to apply to university. I am looking to study medicine abroad, mainly because it is much faster, and I am looking for a change of environment. But my question is, is it worth the hassle and the money to do my undergrad and med school in the UK if I want to practice in Canada? My grades are good, and I have no issue with the costs, but would it be harder for me to find a job if I wanted to come back? I ve also heard that entering med school is easier in the UK than in Canada, but I m not sure. Any advice would be helpful! Thanks for your time!

  • Is it possible to study abroad as a mediocre American student?

    Best answer: Most European unis will require you to have at least 3 AP or SAT II subject exams in order to apply. If you'll have those, then you may be able to get into some European unis.

    Best answer: Most European unis will require you to have at least 3 AP or SAT II subject exams in order to apply. If you'll have those, then you may be able to get into some European unis. I'm not sure if you'll get into a uni in Germany, though - those unis are free if you can get in, which means that getting in is extremely competitive. I know you'd get into some of the non-elite UK unis, though. So you do have options.

    If you decide that going to uni in the EU is financially impossible, then go to uni in the US, and do a year abroad as part of a student exchange program.
