Turkey is often described as a man running west on a train heading east. At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Turkey is in a unique position that allows it to bring out some of the best qualities of both continents. Turks are rightly famous for their hospitality as well as their cuisine. Discover who you really are, make lifelong friendships and immerse yourself in an exciting cultural experience in Turkey.

People & Community

You could live anywhere in Turkey, but you’re most likely to be in or near one of the five main cities: Adana, Izmir, Eskisehir, Istanbul or Ankara. In the evenings, it’s very common for Turkish families to gather around the dinner table and watch TV and drink tea together. Expect a flow of friends and relatives visiting for coffee, tea and lively conversations.


You’ll probably attend an anatolian high school, which is a university preparatory secondary school. A typical school day lasts for 7 or 8 hours and allows students to specialize in either mathematics and science or social studies. Most exchange students attend public schools, but some also get placed in a private high school.
