這個位於巴爾幹半島的國家擁有獨特的中歐和地中海文化,美麗的海岸線和迷人的城市。如果你喜歡大自然,你可與接待家庭一起探索迷人的海灘和國家公園,是一個完美的地方。

克羅地亞的青少年喜歡放學後一起在商場閒逛、逛咖啡館、野餐和跳舞。不要錯過在春天去看一些當地的街頭藝術節和現場的戲劇表演。足球、籃球和水球是最受歡迎的運動。

社區

你的接待寄宿家庭遍佈斯拉沃尼亞的農村到薩格勒布這樣的城市或沿海地區。無論你住在哪裡,你的家人都會期望是負責任和成熟的人,會幫助做家務,自己利用公共交通工具上學,並幫助準備飯菜。

學校

許多學校分上下午班,一半學生上午(上午8時到下午2時)上學,另一半下午(下午2時到8時)上學。通常每天有6至7節課,學校通常提供戲劇、合唱團和體育等課外活動。

語言

官方語言是克羅地亞語,其他語言包括捷克語,匈牙利語,意大利語,塞爾維亞語和斯洛伐克語。對於交流生來說,具備英語基礎知識將會有幫助。 AFS將在頭幾個月會提供語言課程,並有CD和書籍來讓你自修。

食物

克羅地亞的食物因地區而異,從海鮮到肉類都有。一種叫做strukli的芝士糕點非常有名,而通常每頓飯都會有麵包。即使克羅地亞人傾向於吃大量的肉類,他們也會進食新鮮蔬菜。一天中最重要的一餐是午餐,大約在下午2時左右吃。週末的午餐是重要的家庭時間。

Year Exchange PROGRAM

Program Date: August 31, 2018 – June 29, 2019
Birth Date Range: August 31, 2000 – August 31, 2002

You could be placed anywhere in Croatia, from the rural area of Slavonica, to cities like Zagreb, or the coastal region of Dalmatia. In most Croatian families both parents work full-time so you should prepare to be a bit independent. You might be expected to clean up after yourself, use public transportation to get to school, and help prepare meals. Even though most modern Croatian families are very busy, they really value being able to spend time together. It’s also very common for extended family to come together regularly. Croatians love being outdoors and often go camping on the weekends or during vacation.
