i think it is. i'm currently an international student. from singapore...studying in australia. i think it's a real good experience. you meet lots of new ppl...and it takes you out of your comfort zone...and forces you to be independent and stuff. haha.

Hi, I'm on a full year student exchange in Japan right now. I'm with a program called AFS and it's excellent. I cannot describe in words how significant this experience has and will be on my life and the rest of my education as I return to university in Australia next year. I highly recommend doing this (not only to Japan of course) to everyone.

I'm having trouble translating your crap use of english but if I did it right, you mean:

If you go on a school exchange program to Japan, your enjoyment depends on what school you go to, and the people in your class.

Even that, is wrong. I have made no friends in my class, in fact I've discovered that I really don't like Japanese teenagers. They seem immature, superficial, materialistic and so out of touch with reality. Of course it's just a cultural difference that I cannot adapt to which makes the experience even more worthwhile. All the challenges I have faced with my classmates has ultimately made me a better person. So no, the value of student/cultural exchange does not depend on what school or class you get - if that is even what you meant by your post.

Go for it. It will always be a great experience and most frequently it helps in future careers also.

I was nominated to go to UK.. but my dad didn't let me iyah.. Such a good opportunity and it was wasted. My teachers always tell me, you can learn a lot in in exchange programme. Such as culture, lang, ppl .. etc..

the processing and stuff is way easier when you're in uni or college. but then again if you really wanna do it while u're in hs then better start researching and stuff. and start learning the language. hahaha. lol. or else you will not only suffer the consequences of being gaijin but also not being able to communicate. wahahaha lol. when i get to uni i'm planning to join the "study abroad" program. that's different from the "exchange student" program. coz exchange student is limited. you can only go to a certain country of your school has a sister school there or something like that. while study abroad program-- you pick the country and school. but first you gotta make sure your original uni will accept course credits from the school you picked --or else its all kinda pointless. =P
