My first week

Even at the end of my first week, I know this will be one of the best experiences of my life, because the people at the FSA, went out of their way to find me a host family best suited for me and they did an excellent.

I would definitely recommend this to children who want to experience something new and different.

fühlt sich wohl

Hallo Frau Jacobi,
nach der ersten Woche mal eine kurze Rückmeldung von uns, Theo ist von der Gastfamilie in Port Elizabeth sehr herzlich empfangen worden und fühlt sich dort sehr sehr wohl!
Den Berichten und Fotos zufolge hat er eine wirklich unvergessliche Zeit, wir sind sehr froh, dass er es so gut angetroffen hat :-).
Von uns einen herzlichen Dank für ihre tolle Orga, wir wünschen ihnen ein schönes Weihnachtsfest und ein glückliches, gesundes Neues Jahr!
Herzliche Grüße
Familie Iris T.

Fun at Hostfamily

Dear Petra
I am having lots of fun with my host family and I am loving my host sisters and brother.I cannot wait to celebrate Christmas with them!

Love Marise

I'm so happy!!

So far I'm enjoying my stay so much. I've already learned a lot and in this little time, my german has already improved a lot. The school is also something I find very interesting and how they differ from us. Nonetheless, my fellow classmates are also very friendly and go out of their way to make sure I'm okay and understand what they are saying. My family is also very nice and already close to heart. I almost don't want to go back!

What an experience!

So far I think I've faced more challenges than ever before! Nevertheless my host family is really nice and do their best to accommodate me! Germany truly is a a picture book country! I'm so glad I decided to take part in this program.


My stay in Germany has been nothing but pleasant. My host family and I are getting along very well. They go out of their way to make things comfortable for me and spoil me a lot. Germany is a beautiful town and I absolutely love it here!
Thank you so much FSA for giving me the opportunity I will forever remember it !

Germany is SUPER!

I arrived safe in Germany, my host family is so great I couldn't have asked for a better family, we get along very good. Germany is such a beautiful sight.

Wonderful time in Germany

I am really enjoying my stay in Germany. My host family is so wonderful they are really trying their best to accommodate me. I have learned so much about their culture and their ways of doing things and I love their food it is the best


"Du willst nach Südafrika? Gibt es da überhaupt Autobahnen?" , das war eine der ersten Fragen, die mir gestellt wurde, als ich gesagt habe wo mein Schüleraustausch hingehen wird. Südafrika- eines der fassettenreichsten Länder der Welt. Es gibt arme Menschen und reiche. Man kann baden gehen und trotzdem Pinguine am Strand sehen und man kann auf der Autobahn oder eben buchstäblich durch den Busch fahren. Dieses Land ist definitiv immer eine Reise wert. Das wusste ich auch schon vorher und gerade deshalb habe ich mich bewusst dafür entschieden 3 Monate in diesem wunderschönen Land zu leben. Das war die beste Entscheidung! Meine Familie war super. Ich kann mir, für mich, keine bessere (Gast)Familie vorstellen. Durch sie konnte ich so viel vom Land sehen und viele verschiedene Menschen treffen, auch aus anderen Ländern, die in SA ihr (2.) Zuhause gefunden haben.

Ich möchte mich auch nochmal bei Petra bedanken, weil du die perfekte Gastfamilie für mich gesucht und gefunden hast. Ich denke, dass die richtige Familie zu finden einen großen Unterschied zu anderen Organisationen macht. Auch immer einen Ansprechpartner zu haben ist etwas Besonderes , bei Euch eine ganz normale Sache .Danke !

soo exited

I am soo exited to be in Germany, I can't even explain it.
I can't wait to see you in person.
Yes, I and my host family are keeping in touch always. We are communicating very well and I am soo exited to meet them tomorrow.
Thank you and the FSA team for granting me such a wonderful oppoturnity.

My exchange in Germany

Since my arrival in Germany I have experienced so many differences that make you realise how big the world is and how what is normal to you is totally strange to other people and vice versa. I’ve already learnt so much about myself and life. I’ve learnt how to cope with somewhat difficult situations and to enjoy all the wonderful experiences Germany has to offer. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

FSA exchange

The FSA program is a wonderful experience that I would definitely recommend. The host families and the German people are very friendly and understanding. I have found that they will try to help you and a accommodate you as best as they can.
It is fantastic for learning about Germany as well as for practicing your German skills


Thank you so much for placing me with the wonderful and amazing Brückner family. They welcomed me with open arms and smiles. I can't wait to experience the Adventszeit with the family. They are such caring people and tries to help me where they can especially with thr language. I want to improve my german speaking abilities more. I am so thankful to be staying with this great family. I can wait to make more wonderful memories with this family and friends. 🇩🇪🇿🇦


"WOW!" I don't know many words that describes my experience here by far as good as WOW.

Family Engisch are the best host family I could have received, they are the friendliest, most caring and helpful people.
I am ever thankful for the wonderful work all people at the FSA do for the exchange students, it is much appreciated!

The German culture I am exposed fills the gaps of where my soul seeked some new adventures.

Going to school gives this culture exchange a lot more definition than anyone can describe, now I understand why Petra and her team wanted us to join school and all the activities, it makes this Exchange so much more exciting!

I think I'm slowly falling in love with Germany, the language, the people, the culture and the amazing scenery!

After only four days, I can tell, there's much more adventures that awaits.
I am looking forward to the following 5 weeks.

Greetings to South Africa 🇩🇪🇿🇦.

Deutschland Exchange

My family welcomed me with big smiles and open arms, what more could I ask for? I’m already feeling at home and the Wieck family have made an effort to expose me to as much German culture as possible. Looking very forward to the adventures ahead!
