Tartu tilaisuuteen - Kutsu maailma kotiisi!

Sopisiko kotiinne kenties amerikkalainen, italialainen, saksalainen tai japanilainen vaihto-oppilas?

Haemme nyt  2020 saapuville mahtaville nuorille  suomen/ruotsin kielisiä isäntäperheitä . 

Annamme mielellämme lisätietoa oppilaistamme ja ohjelmasta.

ASSEn kautta tulee Suomeen vuosittain 15-18 v. mukavia  vaihto-oppilaita useista eri maista mm. Aasiasta, Pohjois- ja Etelä-Amerikasta, Euroopasta  ja Australiasta.  

Kaikilta vaihto-oppilailta edellytetään äidinkielensä osaamisen lisäksi hyvää englannin kielen taitoa ja koulumenestystä. Nuoret ovat innostuneita tietämään ja oppimaan enemmän Suomesta.

Vaihto-oppilaat käyvät lukiota ikätovereidensa kanssa ja asuvat perheenjäsenenä suomalaisessa isäntäperheessä. 

Oppilaat tulevat Suomeen suurimmaksi osaksi elokuussa kun koulut alkavat, mutta osa tulee myös  tammikuussa.  Oppilaat lähtevät kotiin lukukauden/-vuoden päätyttyä.

He käyvät suomen- tai ruotsinkielistä lukiota ja viipyvät kouluvuoden n. 10 kk tai lukukauden n. 4-5 kk. ASSE järjestää oppilaalle koulupaikan paikallisesta lukiosta.

Isäntäperheitä tarvitaan myös lyhyemmäksi aikaa esim. perheenvaihdon yhteydessä sekä ns. Welcome perheitä vähintään 3 kuukaudeksi.

Vakuutus, taskuraha, säännöt

Vaihto-oppilailla on täysin kattava sairaus-, tapaturma- ja vastuuvakuutus sekä  vanhemmiltaan n. 200-250 € /kk omaa taskurahaa,  jolla he maksavat mm.  vaatteensa, harrastukset, koulutarvikkeet ja -matkat.  

Vaihto-oppilaiden tulee sopeutua perheen, koulun ja organisaation sääntöihin, tähän he ovat kirjallisesti sitoutuneet.

We are all very busy, but we try our best to spend time together whenever possible.

I really love learning about something that isn't what I do in my day-to-day life, such as learning about a different culture. Also, I love digital drawing, origami, games, and playing the guitar. I love to listen to music or read when I have nothing else to keep my idle mind occupied. But above all else, I love to cook. There’s nothing better than to throw something together and know what you’re eating is cooked by you.

My interests they are creative writing-from short stories to poetry, reading (mostly young adult with the occasional classic or adult), catching up on the news, learning guitar- which I recently started doing, hanging out with my friends, listening to music, history and social issues including politics. Spending time with my friends outside of school is important to me because I don’t always have the same classes and meeting out of school is more personal. We do activities that we all enjoy, like eating or watching TV. Since I love creative writing, I am part of a club at school for this and I have been a tutor in my school writing center for a few months, helping anyone I am able to; I am also a member of National Honors Society which is a club for community service and volunteering.

I live in a wonderful city near a lake and the mountains, during a very period of the year you can see beautiful landscapes.

I am a very active girl and I love all kinds of sports. When I was little, I played a lot of sports, such as volleyball and karate, and I’ve practiced ballet for ten years, but after I’m much time it got boring and I started Judo, at fourteen years old. I usually train twice a week, I sometimes help my teachers with the little kids. When I have time I go swimming, to strengthen my back and my arms since I don’t go to the gym. I have never missed a match, and in just three years I’ve competed in eight provincial tournaments and four regional qualifications, I’m looking forward to winning an Italian championship someday, but for now, I give my all to the regular matches.

Music has played a big role in my life, and in fact, I still love it: I don’t have a favourite song or kind of music, because what really matters to me is the lyrics, even though right now I mostly listen to rap, another hobby of mine and reading like favorite books are mostly thrillers.
