Terra Lingua USA


When you share your family with a high School exchange student, you are giving them a view of America that will make a profound difference in who they are and how they relate to Americans. You, in turn, get a glimpse into their life and culture. That's just the beginning of the extraordinary benefits hosting brings to families, students, and the world. Terra Lingua, USA is an established, accredited, non-profit organization that specializes in cultural exchange programs for teens. We believe that by bringing cultures together the world will become more tolerant and understanding. We have approached a new placement season and are eager to find families for the 2020 - 2021 school year. We would love to invite you and your family to apply to host one of our amazing international students. Our student's are 14-17 years old and eager to learn about American culture. They are thoroughly screened and arrive with spending money, medical insurance, and have proven their English proficiency. Although hosting an international exchange student is strictly voluntary for all of our families, the rewards are endless. Students will stay for the school year or one single semester (fall or spring) with your family. We believe in finding the best fit for everyone, therefore we work closely with our students and families to ensure that we match a student and family with as much in common as possible. Please visit our website and apply to host a student TODAY or feel free to reply to this email! https://tlusa.org/host-a-student
