[長文]”Study Exchange” by Pat Miller



本文

Craighouse School in Glasgow has been sending children overseas to France on an exchange program since 1971. The students’ French improves a lot, and when they come back they usually no longer need a French tutor to help them outside of school. The children who take part in the exchange program have to be over the age of thirteen.

Mrs. Bankes, whose daughter is participating in this year’s exchange group, says, “I think it’s a wonderful opportunity for Kim. Although she has only been away for a month, I have already started to miss her. I’ve been making long-distance calls to Paris about once a week since she left.”

Anyone who has seen Kim in Paris knows that she hasn’t been missing anyone. Kim is very happy with the program. She says that her French has really improved, and hearing her French accent, it was easy to believe her.

“I haven’t been homesick even once,” Kim says. “I have made several new friends and I have a great roommate, Chantal, who I will keep in touch with when I leave. I don’t even feel like going home at all.”

Studying Overseas

Exchange (programs) are usually successful. At first, the students may be (homesick) and (miss) their family. But today, e-mail makes it easy to (keep in touch) with family and friends, and, if they (feel like) it, students can always pick up the telephone and make a (long-distance) call just to say hello. Generally speaking, students that (take part) in an exchange program say they get a lot out of it.
