Germany Exchange

Exchange Objectives

This is a fantastic and unique opportunity for students in their Grade 10 and 11 year enrolled in German language courses to participate in a reciprocal academic exchange during the school year.

This exchange aims to:

  1. Improve German language proficiency.
  2. Promote international goodwill and understanding.
  3. Supplement classroom studies with firsthand experience in another country.

Our Exchange Includes

  • Accompanied International travel to and from Germany
  • Two BCHLA locally organized orientation sessions
  • A ten-week reciprocal exchange with your German partner attending your BC Secondary school and homestay with your family.  The same situation, in reverse, will be your experience in Germany.
  • Opportunities to participate in German school-sponsored activities, often including field trips, and other extracurricular activities and events.
  • The opportunity to forge a life-long friendship.
  • Year-round administrative support provided by BCHLA.

In Germany this Programme is administered by the Ministerium für Bildung, Wissenschaft, Jugend und Kultur, in Rheinland-Pfalz.
