Do you want to organize a trilateral exchange for children and young people so that they can get to know France or Germany and improve their language skills? A stay abroad with interesting activities is particularly useful for the promotion of the linguistic and intercultural skills of children and young people! The FGYO supports numerous exchange programs around sports, culture, the arts, technology, science and social issues. You can decide on the theme together with the partner organizations or institutions in France and Germany.
The aim of international youth exchanges is that the young people from different countries form strong relationships and communicate with each other. The use of language animation activities helps to reduce initial shyness among young people when first meeting each other and to create better group dynamics. As the organizer of a youth exchange with language animation activities you can find more information about the funding conditions and about method of language animation here.
Before the departure of your group, you can organize a linguistic preparation of you exchange during which the participants can learn some basics or deepen their skills and have an intercultural preparation at the same time. The FGYO can help you financially with the preparation of this course.
In order to make the exchange a real encounter and encourage communication between young people from different countries, the FGYO has developed numerous methods and materials which can help you make the most of the linguistic and intercultural potential of the encounter. You will find many suggestions for the successful organization of international youth exchanges.
