Speaking of accents, I'm in Coa Coa beach for the weekend staying with my aunt and uncle, in an attempt to relax (which is working so nicely) and I haven't spoken a word of English since I got here (with the exception of when he called)... my accent is coming back full throttle! I might forget how to speak in English!

Oh, and I am *so burned right now... like... purple. Help.

Okay, so i was at an orientation today with my exchange organisation and im so fucking pissed at them, they can just go fuck themselves. So now im trying to figure out a good revange, and i really mean big time here. I want to put that fucking organisation down forever. Ideas are welcome hehe

anyhow, one idea of mine was to try to get a newspaper to publish an article about how shitty they are, so this is an email i thought about sending one of the more gossip newspapers in this area (toronto star)

quote:
Subject: Tips for an article about exchange organisations

Body:
Hi,

I am an exchange student from Sweden currently living in Ontario studying at high school. I choose to go to Canada to get to experience your culture and see as much as possible of your country. As a Swede I hadn't really heard a lot about Canada, but it seemed like a nice country to go to, and after some research I thought that Canada would be the best country to go to for me (out of all countries in the world).

My point with this email though is that the Canada we got to experience here, is probably not the Canada that Canada wants to be portrayed as when we go back to our home countries. The Canada we got to experience was a country were exchange students ended up in families that used them as labour at their farms, or as baby sitters or something else. A Canada where we werenít allowed to do anything except sitting at home. A Canada where we were taken away many rights a Canadian citizen has. A Canada where we were constantly told that we should accept this and that this was Canadian culture. A Canada where our exchange organisation decided what they thought was Canadian culture, and blamed everything on the students, and always put the host families as first priority, and not the students who were here to learn about the cultures of Canada.

Many of these stories would be told to our friends back home, who might not know better than that this is Canada. If this happened to a Canadian in Sweden I would be seriously concerned, they are misusing the culture and also making your country look bad to the rest of the world!

All that said, I think that most exchange students here had a great time, but Iím sure that the way we would have experienced Canada would be a lot better and your reputation in the rest of the world would be a lot better if you took care about your exchange students better. When I say you, I donít mean the friendly Canadian people, but the organisation that are supposedly here to help us.

Anyway, I think that an article about this would perhaps make the Canadian people aware of how their country is being portrayed to the rest of the world, thanks to organisations like this, and also to help people to not support organisations like this in the future.

I hope to hear from you if you are interested or not!

Best Regards,
Erik Englund


Should i send the letter? And more importantly, what is good/bad about it?

Looks not bad but I'd get some of your mates to counter sign it, as manay as possible. Then it doesn't look like one pissed off person but a systematic problem.

(state the organisation?)

Way too vague. Grammar is on par with most my post on TA here (meaning its very bad and you should correct it). Dish out the specifics: Name, places, people, dates, times, etc.

and like Devrish said the more people the better.

Also if you want to get it out to a newspaper it is best to know/have/contact a reporter working for the paper that might be interested in hearing your story and bringing it out then just sending it to the editorial desk.

I can't help you with any reporter in Tornoto, but might be worth asking in the Canadian forum.

Yes my grammar sucks, but i guess i need someone else to correct since im really bad when it comes to grammar. Also im an exchange student, im not supposed to have good english

And i dont know, i didnt really want to put out to much specifics yet. mostly because i havent talked to all the ppl yet, and also because i dont want them to have all the info yet, simply because i still have one week left on the program, so if they contact them, i will get into even more deep shit than i currently am!

Yes, I thought about this yestruday, but when i wrote it was too late to gather more.

Also, most ppl dont go off program till July 16 or so, so they might actually be affraid to sign this thing. So in a way it would be a lot better not giving more names away, but doing the thing anonymously. Or perhaps i could include something like "please dont include our names, we are affraid that they might send us home or something if we do this openly, like they have misstreated people in the past that voiced their opinion."

Yes i guess that can help, i will try in the toronto forum and see my luck

two fans? sorry? voted best fans in the last world cup, where your lot? Hardly, best fans for causing trouble pthough, scum. YOur fans should take some notes of sctoland, then at least yous wont be hated world wide!

I donbt think i even need to remind what happened the last time Ireland played england(we were winning just in case you forget!)
