Varför vill Jana åka till Sverige?
"After some research and looking through the options, I kind of fell in love with the idea of visiting Sweden. I was always infatuated with the Scandinavian landscapes and the language has a really nice sound. I eagerly started learning the language in May 2022 and my progress is already visible. I think it is somewhat similar to my native language German. In general, I heard many great things about Sweden. My dream is to study in a different country, so this exchange is definitely an exceptional opportunity to gain some experience first."

Hälsningar från Jana:
"The reasons for my exchange are that I want to visit another country and see and learn many new things, maybe making new friends. Also, I want to spend time without my parents and become more independent. I don't know what the future has in store for me, but I am positive that this exchange will have a positive impact on me. Thank you for considering me as your host daughter! I am excited for the time we will spend together.

But it’s not the same going to Sweden for vacation and to live there, to go to school and get to know people my age, hopefully make some new friends and to get to know the everyday life. One thing I really want to achieve is getting better at Swedish and get to know the Swedish culture and history.

Namn: Helena
Födelseår: 2004
Språk: Tjeckiska, Tyska & Engelska
Period: Januari 2023 – April 2023

Helena lives with her parents and her twin sister in Czech Republic. Her passion is reading books and writing stories or poetry by herself. At this moment she is working on a fantasy story that she hopes be a real book one day. She is a big dreamer with big goals. She also likes listening to music, especially metal or rock. Helena used to do cheerleading and this is something she would love to do again.

Varför vill Helena åka till Sverige?
"Going on Exchange program to Sweden would mean much to me. Sweden is a country full of opportunities for me and I would love to get to know its culture and traditions and see what it means to live there. I fell in love with Sweden’s nature and would like to explore it on my own, through my own eyes. Lately, I’ve been thinking a little about moving there in the future, so I take this as a great opportunity to get to know how it feels like to live in the country. I also love Swedish and perhaps would like to learn the language, I have learnt some sentences and words already, but I am a self-learner and I do not think I would be able to hold a conversation with someone yet. The reason I want to study in Sweden is that I want to see the differences between the school systems and simply learn something new. I am certain the program would offer me to meet with a lot of new people, find new friends, and create international friendships that might last forever, which is awesome. It is clear it will give me more than I can imagine yet, make me a completely different person, and give me memories that last forever. Whatever stays ahead, I want to explore it and set out on this amazing adventure with you."

En hälsning från Helena:
"I am a person who loves fun and can't go long without a good and hearty laugh. I am open-minded and honest, lies do not taste good on my tongue, and I am very friendly. My fantasy has almost no limits; I love writing stories and poetry and I'm the kind of a person who comes up with crazy and funny ideas. I am responsible, I am always on time and I try to get the best out of my work. I love listening to music and reading books, because both inspire me a lot, and I also like hiking, cycling and going out with friends. I try to be positive about every situation, learn from my own mistakes and don't regret things that did not work out in the past and instead take them as a lesson and opportunity to become a better person."
