You are simply an all-round great team! We are very pleased that we have decided to choose you for the organisation of this successful year for our daughter.

Andri spent one School Year in Valencia. His comment:

My host family has been so wonderfully kind to me, I have no words to express my gratitude towards them and the Openmind.
The first days were hard but now I speak almost fluently Spanish and feel right at home. Sometimes I get sad when I think about my family in Iceland – but then I just open the window in my room, breathe in the mediterranean air – and I’m filled with joy.

I’ve made lots of friends in school and the teachers have all been very kind. Valencia is an incredibly beautiful city and the weather here is always lovely.
I think I want to stay here forever!

Svenja and Antonia

report enthusiastically about their stay in Seville:

Paula and Antonia

were host sisters in Granada...

Agnes enjoyed her time in Galicia. Look at her nice email:

I’m writing messages with my very good friend from Spain and suddenly I’ve started to cry, but not because of sadness, but because of gratitude for this amazing year in Spain.
I miss it so much. The Spanish food, the Spanish school, my friends, the sea, the weather and of course my host family, who I will visit in summer!
I wanted to say thank you again! It was an amazing year and I’m very happy to have taken this step. It helps me tremendously here in Germany. I’m very thankful for everything and I hope that you will be able to offer many more students such a wonderful stay!

Charlotte, who spend one School Year in Córdoba:

Openmind is a great organisation. I was in good hands from the day in September when I left the plane until this very moment. I love that Openmind is such a small and personal organization and I had the impression that you all love what you do.

So thank you very much for realizing this unforgettable experience of my life.
I will neverforget you!

A feedback from a mother whose daughter spent one School Year in Valencia

Everything is like a dream! Our daughter is super happy with her family. They're all being very nice to her and very touchingly caring. Thank you again for having found a fantastic family for our child!!!
The coordinators Neli and Jose are also a gem. They took our daughter by the hand, and got her schoolbooks, went with her to Tennis lessons, etc. Also, here we would like to thank you very, very much.
