Vermont is a beautiful State with many opportunities for winter sports, fall foliage viewing and maple syrup tasting. Take a weekend trip to Montreal or explore Burlington Vermont which is just 3 hrs from Brattleboro.
Testimonials from International Students
"This experience helps me to become more mature and responsible, I met amazing people, I'm beginning to speak English fluently and it gives me a lot of opportunities for my future such as jobs and college." (Thibaut Lesage)
Cette expérience m’aide à devenir plus mature et plus responsable , j’ai rencontré des personnes incroyables, je commence à pouvoir parler anglais aisément et cela me donne beaucoup d’opportunités pour l’avenir : au niveau du travail et de l’université/haute école.
"The exchange experience affected many aspects of my life. I met a lot of people and lived in a totally different culture from mine, what made me more open to new opportunities and more open-minded. Getting out of my comfort zone also demanded more responsibility from me and made me a more outgoing person. I also improved my english a lot."
O intercâmbio afetou muitos aspectos da minha vida. Eu conheci muitas pessoas e vivi em uma cultura completamente diferente da minha, o que me tornou uma pessoa mais mente aberta e mais aberta para novas oportunidades. Sair da minha zona de conforto também demandou mais responsabilidade da minha parte e me fez uma pessoa mais extrovertida. Eu também melhorei muito meu inglês.
