The language is still a challenge, but I found that a mixture of Hungarian, English and hand motions usually produces a conversation. Soon I will have to change host families. This is exciting, but I will miss the familiarity of my home now. There was talk of me changing schools, but that is still unknown.
The reason for this is that I am the only exchange student in my club, so I may have to be switched with another club’s hosts. I’m not sure if this is something I want, though. I have been getting along with my host family well and making friends, so it is sad to think that there is a possibility of me having to leave.
What ever happens, it’ll be an adventure. I feel like the time is going too fast, because as soon I know it, I’ll be back in America. I don’t want to come home.
