Today I´ve got my host family. They live in Wisconsin and will have six siblings. Three of them doesn´t live in the house. With the others I will live together. The family has three dogs, which rejoice me, because we haven´t any pets.
Yesterday and today I was at a preparation weekend. There we, I and other students who make an exchange year too, learned more about the american culture and that speaking isn´t the only way to communicate. Also we learned that sometimes you must do things, which aren´t that comfortable for you. But if you don´t do these things you will hurt your host family.
