  Study Exchange by Pat Miller Craighouse School in Glasgow has been sending children overseas to France on an exchange program since 1971. The students'French improves a lot, and when they come back they usually no longer need a French tutor to help them outside of school. The children who take part in the exchange program have to be over theage of thirteen. Mrs. Bankes, whose daughter is participating in this year's exchange group, says, I think it's a wonderful opportunity for Kim.Although she has only been away for a month, I have already started to miss her. I've been making long-distance calls to Paris about once a week since she left.  Anyone who has seen Kim in Paris knows that she hasn't been missing anyone. Kim is very happy with the program. She says thather French has really improved, and hearing her French accent, it was easy to believe her. I haven't been homesick even once, Kim says. I have madeseveral new friends and I have a great roommate, Chantal, who I will keep in touch with when I leave. I don't even feel like going home at all. The exchange program also helps these young people meet again after the program has ended, and friends like Chantal and Kim will probably meet at Kim's home in Scotland next year. Of course, that's if Kim hasn't already decided to stay in France and become a French citizen! Parents who are interested in sending their children abroad on this program should contact the Craighouse School in Pollock, Glasgow. INTERCAMBIO ESTUDIANTIL Por Pat Miller El Craighouse School de Glasgow lleva enviando niños a Francia en un programa de intercambio desde 1971. El francés de los alumnos mejora de forma apreciable y cuando regresan, normalmente, ya no necesitan profesores particulares de francés que les ayuden fuera del colegio. Los niños que participan en el programa de intercambio deben tener más de trece años de edad. La Sra. Bankes, cuya hija está participando en el grupo de intercambio de este año, dice: Creo que es una excelente oportunidad para Kim. Aunque ella sólo lleva un mes en el extranjero, ya empiezo a echarla de menos. He estado llamando a París aproximadamente una vez por semana desde que se fue . Todo el que haya visto a Kim en París sabe que no echa de menos a nadie. Kim está muy contenta con el programa. Dice que su francés realmente ha mejorado y, al escuchar su acento francés, resulta fácil creerla. No he sentido nostalgia de mi hogar ni una sola vez , asegura Kim. He hecho muchas amistades nuevas y tengo una estupenda compañera de habitación, Chantal, con quien me mantendré en contacto después de que me vaya. Ni siquiera tengo ganas de regresar a casa . El programa de intercambio también ayuda a estos jóvenes a reunirse nuevamente después de finalizar el programa, y amigas como Kim y Chantal probablemente vuelvan a reunirse en la casa de Kim en Escocia el próximo año. Eso es, ¡si Kim todavía no ha decidido quedarse en Francia y adquirir la nacionalidad francesa! Los padres interesados en enviar a sus hijos al extranjero en este programa deben contactar con el Craighouse School en Pollock, Glasgow.
