Who places the students in the host families?

All students have to submit a CV and a letter in which they introduce themselves to the Lynn Engle, who forwards the material to the International Institute. Once you decide to take part in the program, Lynn Engle and the Auslandsgesellschaft contribute your application amongst potential host families.

When can I contact my host family after I have signed up to participate?

Immediately! As soon as you know your German family we encourage you to reach out via email or your social media networks.

Have a look at the statements of experience on this website! They might help you decide. If you are still not sure, we can put you in touch with a past student who will be more than willing to answer any question you may have.
