In the U.S. we sometimes call an affliction suffered in the last months of one's high school career "senioritis." As you reach the last few weeks of your exchange, you may exhibit the student exchange version of this: "exchangitis."
Students suffering this debilitating disease display one or more of the following symptoms: feelings of apathy, a lack of studying, frequent late assignments, messy bedrooms, and generally taking things for granted.
If this disease seems to have invaded your body or home, do not panic, as there is a cure!
The "cure" for this unfortunate malaise is increasing meaningful communication and activities between student and host family, as well as students recommitting themselves to positive communication with their teachers and to keeping up with school assignments, despite all the fun end-of-year activities.
Let's all recommit to one another today to finishing the last weeks of our exchanges on a high note - leaving lasting, positive impressions in your communities and building foundations for lifelong friendships!
