Hi, I´m from Germany and I really would like to spend half a year or so in an English-speaking country. I know it´s kinda expensive and since my older sister is already in another country for several week (because she had the same idea like me) I´m looking for inexpensive alternatives because my mom´s a single parent. I was thinking about something where a student comes to our family for several months and I´m staying at his/her family´s home in return. Most companies like dfh or so don´t offer such kinds of "exchange" So my question is now: do you know any alternatives besides this website where I could find someone who would like to do such an exchange?
What should I do?
