Camilla Frank is a 15-year-old exchange student from Odense, Denmark. She is staying with the Harvath family for 10 months. Frank decided to go to the U.S because it’s a country she hears a lot about, she wants to improve her English and because “everything is bigger here than it is in Denmark. I really like it here in America, and my host family is amazing,” she said with a smile on her face. Her favorite thing about America is the school system. “In Denmark we stay in one classroom with the same classmates throughout the whole school day, so changing rooms every hour is new to me. Changing classes every hour prevents me from being stuck with one class for the whole year. This makes it easier for me to make friends,” she said. She also dislikes some things dislikes about America, she said there are some “small things that irritate” her. An example is the weeks starting on Sunday in the calendars. “Monday is the first day of the week; why don’t they understand that here?” Even though she is enjoying her time in America she said, “I miss my family, and the way we do some things in Denmark. I also know that I’m going to miss my American friends and my host family when I leave America. And also the cheap prices. “Frank is looking forward to seeing more of America, tasting more food and experiencing the Christmas dance and prom. When she is going back to Denmark, she will start in 11th grade and continue her education from there.
