School exchanges involve a group of students and teachers
travelling abroad, staying with host families, and then
hosting their exchange partners when they come to Ireland.
They are a wonderful way of experiencing immersion and
how families live in the target language (TL) country.
55% of respondents in our survey said there was
a school exchange in place. Their experience may
encourage the remaining 45% to start an exchange.
Examples of successful school exchanges
See the following clips to get a sense of what some successful school exchanges look like.
These particular exchanges include an element of work experience, and additional examples will follow later.
The video clips are intended to highlight some of the benefits of doing school exchanges to not only
language teachers, but also nonlanguage teachers, principals, parents and students.
