    s successful submission of application and acceptance materials We thank you for supporting our program throughout its fifty year history Whether you are new to the program or have been a loyal team member for years we invite you to learn about us and what s new from year to year Your knowledgeable support prepares your student s for the challenging journey the IUHPFL presents If you are new to our program and site please review the Qualifications for Participation first Agreement to Participate Participating schools fill out the Agreement to Participate which helps the IUHPFL keep track of important phone numbers school specific coordinators and contact information of foreign language teachers However this form has no bearing on whether any student at the high school actually follows through with the language test or applies to the program Why the IUHPFL is Different The IUHPFL Academic Focus The IUHPFL Honor Code includes the Language Commitment a pledge to communicate exclusively in the foreign language while abroad and the expectation to maintain the Honor in Honors Program emphasizing that an IUHPFL student not only holds himself herself accountable for upholding the Honor Code but holds his her peers accountable as well The IUHPFL Host Family Experience My IUHPFL students contribute tremendously to my classroom They bring authenticity to the language They share their experiences and get other students excited about the program and the culture They share challenges they had to overcome tearful days and lonely moments But they always finish by saying what an absolutely awesome experience it was They laugh about the dumb things they were embarrassed to have done and teach all the cuss words I m not allowed to say It s truly real and the other kids admire them and wish they too could have that
