What is Foreign Exchange to Me?

"A year of of my life. My life in a year."

Exchange Student: Most awesome person you will ever meet. Exchange students willing decide to get off their a**es, leave their home country, and go see the world. For that reason, they should be given a heck of a lot of credit. Usually, a foreign exchange student will have a funny accent and not speak your language very well. This is all the more reason to hang out with them, because everything will suddenly become that much more hilarious. Also, they are generally young people, and have a tendency to be extreamly good looking. In conclusion, props to all the exchange students out there. (Provided by urban dictionary)

German Winter: A time so cold, everyone’s nose is bright pink, whether or not they are sick.

Öhrworm: “Ear worm,” or the German way of saying “a song stuck in my head.”

“I Split Your Bagel”: A Portuguese song actually called “Ay Se Eu Te Pego” that is played three times in over two hours in German clubs, despite being in Portuguese.

Trilingual: Someone who speaks and understands three languages (I recommend it.)

*Sitting on the bus between Argentinean exchange students speaking Spanish and random Germans speaking German*

German 1: Listen to that! I wonder what language they’re speaking.

German 2: I don’t know, but I bet it’s Italian!

Just trying to change it up a bit this week! And remember, vote “Angie’s Odyssey” in bab.la’s “Top Exchange & International Blogs” competition!

Vote the best IX12 blog
P.S. Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with these pictures!? *Note: The pictures we’re taking at the exact same time (1:54 p.m. German time, 4:54 a.m. California time) and are in Celsius)*
