    Call it a curse, or just call me blessed, if you can't handle my worst, you ain't gettin' my best. Take me or leave me, I'll never be perfect, believe me I'm worth it.

EF – The leader in high school exchange

EF has been breaking down barriers of language, culture and geography for almost 50 years. Our high school exchange programs bring more international students abroad each year than any other program of its kind, and since 1979 we have connected more than 100,000 enthusiastic students from around the world with caring host families across the U.S., the UK and Ireland. We are committed to promoting cross-cultural understanding all over the globeā€”one student, one family, one community at a time.
