The ability to analyze global and intercultural issues is essential from an early age. Today’s students will be the decision makers in the globalized society of the future. They will meet and experience different realities, societies and opportunities. And to deal with it successfully, you need two tools. On the one hand, the mastery of different languages (multilingualism) and, as a complement, a variety of cultural experiences that can be lived from a school with exchanges.

Do young people need to have the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in different cultures during the school year? And improve their linguistic skills? Developing a deeper understanding of cultural diversity? The answer to all these questions is clearly yes.

Various institutional bodies have carried out studies and compiled statistics highlighting the importance of participating in a school exchange. Here are some highlights of this cultural experience that can be enjoyed in a school with exchanges:

  • UNESCO emphasizes that participation in a student exchange promotes intercultural understanding and tolerance. This contributes to peace and global cooperation.
  • The European Union Youth Institute has analyzed the effects of language exchanges on the employability of young people. The results show that those who have participated in exchange programs are more likely to find employment in the short term. On the other hand, over the course of their careers, they have an easier time accessing positions of greater responsibility.
  • The British Council has investigated how a student exchange positively influences the development of soft skills. This is the case of communication, empathy and adaptability. This enhances their ability to work in international teams and multicultural contexts.
  • Finally, the World Bank has emphasized that the mobility brought about by foreign exchanges contributes to the exchange of knowledge. It also contributes to the development of human capital in the recipient countries.


In addition to academic training, the Exchange Programs provide valuable learning beyond the classroom. Students face personal and cultural challenges that allow them to develop different skills. These include empathy, tolerance and resilience. These skills are essential in an increasingly interconnected and multicultural world. This is coupled with the fact that they prepare young people for the future with an open and compassionate mindset.

During this cultural experience in an exchange school, students have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular and sporting activities that may not be available in their home country. These extracurricular experiences offer a unique way to learn and develop leadership, teamwork and perseverance skills.

Cultural Diversity: Learning from other perspectives

During an exchange abroad, participants learn to value and respect cultural differences. This results in the enrichment of their vision of the world. It also allows them to view problems and challenges from a variety of perspectives. This open-mindedness translates into a more aware and engaged global citizenry.

In addition to cultural diversity, students participating in an exchange abroad are also exposed to different value and belief systems. By understanding and respecting different perspectives, young people become compassionate leaders and agents of change. Characteristics that can contribute positively to the global society.

Contrary to what some may think, language exchanges are not only focused on the cultural aspect. They also have academic benefits. Participants develop problem-solving skills. In addition to this, adaptability and the ability to work as part of a team. Both aspects, in turn, improve school performance. Upon returning to their home country, students often show a greater interest in learning and a greater motivation to achieve their academic goals.

These programmes offered at an exchange school also provide the opportunity to access specific courses and subjects that may not be available at your home institution. Students can take advantage of the unique academic experience offered by the foreign university or institution. This allows them to acquire specialized knowledge and develop skills that enrich their professional training.

"I have participated in two language exchanges. With the Einsenhower International School - Oklahoma-, and with the Lakes International Language Academy -Minnesota-. I did it to practice and improve my English. Also to get to know their culture. But at the end I realized that I had found much more than that. I had found a great family and friends and a fantastic life experience".
