Once upon a time...

on September 30, 2011, 28 Danish students boarded a plane in Billund, Denmark.... 
bound for Seattle, Washington USA....
with no idea of what awaited them.


For two months they lived with American families, ate American food, and did American things. But most importantly they went to school at an American college!


They collected memories, drank lots of coffee, bought lots of Apple products, and took lots of pictures. But most importantly they learned what it is like to take the same subjects they take at Herning Gymnasium in classrooms that use more American teaching methodologies. 


And two months later, on November 29th, they experienced one more very American thing....

And today they head back to Herning, Denmark, FOREVER CHANGED.

Congratulations to all the gradutes. This is such a great program. I am thinking that some of the culture shock is lessened if they stayed with Scandinavian American families. They are not an endanged species in the Seattle area. '-)
