WEPisode #6: Molly In Italy





Jump To:


Hey ya’ll, study abroad in the United States of America with WEP Australia!

On a traditional WEP exchange to the USA, you could be placed anywhere in this massive country; from small town to bustling city this country’s landscape is as varied as its people!

We’ve all seen our fair share of American life from watching Netflix, but the real USA is a very different place from Riverdale and Stranger Things. It’s a place of great diversity, where you will meet locals who are patriotic, welcoming and enthusiastic (and who love us Australians!).

The school experience in the US is unique – students are encouraged to engage with their school community, which is fun and social! Join a club – debating, fashion, languages, stand up comedy, theatre, cheer-leading, glee! Or, get involved in school sports, which Americans take very seriously, and make sure you attend prom!

Just because they speak English in the USA, doesn’t mean that there won’t be a language barrier! Your accent alone will be enough to provide a topic for conversation.  Just don’t forget that ‘thongs’ are a completely different type of clothing in the USA!

Soon you could be hopping onto a yellow school bus for the trip to school, sharing stories with classmates over lunch in the school cafeteria, or learning all about democracy and the American ‘Bill of Rights’ in class.

Take the leap and start your own American adventure!

Looking to be placed somewhere specific? We offer a WEP Study Abroad program to the USA also! This program comes at an additional cost. More information below.
