I lived abroad in China for 10 months in '11-'12 through AFS. I had a Chinese family and got to travel around the country with 7 great friends also in the program and see all the different scenic spots and differences in culture. This was the best experience in my life as I got to experience independence in my teenage years before heading off to college! I would never trade this for a normal junior year in high school, this opportunity is the best possible!
