Introduce an international student to Danish everyday life
Seize the opportunity to get to know a student with a foreign cultural background and help him/her to settle in in Grenaa.
Through four visits by the international student, you and your family contribute to:
Support family contact: why
Most of our international students are IB-students and live at the Boarding School. Some of them speak Danish and are familiar with Danish culture, but have lived abroad for a major part of their lives. Therefore, they are unfamiliar with the Danish school system.
Being a support family contact, you and your family decide how much time you want to spend with the international student and what you want to do together.
We suggest four visits as a minimum and that you:
Introduce the international student to the family
Show him/her around Grenaa and the local area
Discuss what it is like to go to school in Denmark
Introduce him/her to things to do in one’s free time, for example by taking him/her to your own sport activities.
In the beginning of the school year, Grenaa Gymnasium hosts an introduction event where you will meet your guest student and find dates for four visits during September and October.
In November, Grenaa Gymnasium hosts yet another event for all support family contacts and their guest students. From here on, it is up to you whether you want to continue the new friendship.

• A great international network
• A different learning experience
