This was a fantastic human and linguistic experience for our children. Mathieu had good relationship with his correspondent and family and improved his English considerably. For sure we shall renew the experience next year. (Mathieu’s father)

Hayley, USA

This summer was absolutely wonderful! I had the best time in Rome and really enjoyed getting to show Mariasole all around Kansas. We were a really good match for one another and are already making plans to visit each other as soon as we have time off school. Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity! I hope many more people get to have this amazing experience! 

Jacquelynn, USA

There are no words to describe the fabulous experience we all had (both sides) what a fantastic program. Thank you for everything you did to help us. More importantly thank you for this program!  (Jacquelynn’s mother) 


Molly's exchange with Nicole from Australia was incredible- life changing- and the single best experience of Molly's life.  The family treated Molly like a daughter and took her to see so many things.  They even flew to Sydney!  They treated her to everything and she loved it all so much she did NOT want to come home.  She and Nicole have been in touch texting and talking on the phone every day since then, and begging to see each other again.  that is how meaningful this friendship has become.  Both of my daughters say they want to participate in IYE for as many years as they are able. 

Thanks for a great program!

Achille, France

The exchange with Tyler was great. Boys had a great time together. They had a lot in common and as planned, they sailed, surfed and spent few days to visit major monuments around our place. Achille really appreciated his stay in Vancouver. (Achille’s mother)

Carla, Germany

I did the IYE exchange this summer with Jasmin from Canada. I want to say thank you to this program, because it was the best summer of my life! We really enjoyed it and we had so much fun! I think this exchange is the best thing you can do in our age and Jasmin and me are really good friends now and still in contact. We plan to visit each other next summer again. My English improved and it was hard to find the right German words when I came back to Germany! Thank you for this experience! Greetings from Germany, Carla

Kylie, Canada

Kylie had a wonderful experience with the exchange. I only wish I would have known about this program a few years ago. Giorgia and her family were so nice and made Kylie's first exchange a memorable one! The girls still keep in touch with each other and I hope it's the beginning of a long friendship. We couldn't of been happier with the IYE program. Thank you, Kelly (Kylie’s Mom)

Daniel, USA

I am emailing you to tell you that my exchange with Ignacio was a success! We both had a lot of fun. I also went to visit Paddy from Germany who I exchanged with last year, which was also very fun. Please make my account active again so I can match with another kid from another place in the world. Thank you, Daniel, age 16, American Airlines family.

Ignacio, Spain

The exchange this year with Daniel from the USA has been very nice. They enjoyed a lot. Both of them had a good time. Here in Madrid and before in Boston. Many greetings, Pilar (Ignacio’s mother) Iberia Airlines

Eilee, USA

Eilee had a great time in France! Julia will come stay with us soon. The exchanges aren’t even done yet and we already have plans to go back for a visit in March! What a great program that can bring together airline families who are now lifelong friends. (Eilee’s mother)

Chase, USA

We had a very nice exchange with Nicolas! In fact, he was having such a good time that he stayed about 2 weeks longer :) Thank you for all you do for this program! Two of my kids have had great experiences and my other kids can't wait to be old enough to participate. Sincerely, Brandy (Chase’s mother).

Beatrice, 16, USA

Beatrice had a great experience with Roxane this summer!
