Greta Höhndorf visited the United States on a long vacation, otherwise known as the Foreign Exchange Program.

Höhndorf returned to Germany on June 13, 2018, after spending a semester in America. “I went to the school right away from the airport, just to see (my friends),” said Höhndorf.

While in the United States, Höhndorf improved her English.

Her new English prowess has affected her daily life. “One day in my physics class, I just start talking in English after watching an English video. I didn’t even notice until my friends started looking at me!”

I returned right before summer break, so I got the chance to see everyone again!”

However, while living in America is not something Höhndorf would like to do, she still misses it when she sees photos of her American friends and activities.

“I start to miss them, but I’m glad that I had the chance to get to know and meet them and that we’re still in touch,” said Höhndorf.

While she thoroughly enjoyed the exchange program and believes it was a great experience, Höhndorf did find one drawback: “There is one big disadvantage of having two homes. Wherever you are at, you’re always missing one of your homes.”
