A new, groundbreaking opportunity for middle and high school students from all over the World

The Exchange eXperience Program (EXP) is a digital intercultural exchange program which gives students the experience of studying abroad without the prohibitive costs. Participants take an online English language course with students from all over the world. They are also placed in EXP Groups of international students with whom they participate in weekly video based activities which recreate the authentic study abroad experience.

Every week EXP groups undertake collaborative tasks which are designed to raise the participants intercultural awareness whilst placing the materials they have covered in class in a real-world context. These peer-to-peer sessions are structured in a way which gives students the opportunity to learn autonomously and proactively. In this way the program enables the students to develop the communicative skills necessary for cooperation with people across cultural barriers, skills which are fundamental to success in both international relations and the contemporary business world.

The English language course is led by qualified mother-tounge teachers.

The intercultural exchange tasks are managed autonomously by the students during the 20 weeks of the Exchange eXperience Program, whereas the English language course is always led by qualified mother tongue teachers. At the end of the Program, each student can choose whether to certify the progress with an internationally valid LanguageCert certificate. It is possible to take the online test in supervised mode. The certification does not expire.
