Participating in a foreign exchange program is an amazing experience for high school and college students alike. Young people from all over the world take flight every year to travel to distant lands and familiarize themselves with a new culture. Often, these exchange programs set participants up with a host family who is expected to house, feed, and teach the student about their lifestyle. Then again, not everyone signs up to host a foreign student with the best intentions.
