Babylon, NY (PRWEB) May 09, 2014
International Student Exchange (ISE), released a mini-documentary featuring one of their exchange students from Germany. The documentary covers the five month stay of the student and showcases what the hosting experience is like for the family.
ISE, the largest non-profit student exchange program in the US, has been placing students for over 30 years. Even though nearly 3,000 students come through their program each year, ISE still felt they could never describe what it’s like to host an exchange student.
“Hosting a student is an amazing opportunity. It’s sometimes hard to explain that in words when talking to a family interested in the idea. We feel this video will illustrate the experience and how the exchange student will become part of your family,” stated Paul McLaughlin, COO for ISE.
The video itself takes you through a series of events throughout Marie’s exchange experience. While the video is about Marie, the content also focused on the host family.
“Even though the video is focused on Marie and her time in the US, it also portrays the experience of a typical host family,” explained Paul.
You are walked through the video month by month. It starts with the beginning of school, followed up by homecoming, community service and then ending with the holidays. The video displays a very real bond the student and family develop. That is confirmed with the emotional good bye.
