opportunity for teenager to live abroad during the summer vacation

Jump to last reply

My 16-year-old son has the opportunity next summer to live with a family for two months either in Istanbul or in Bali, Indonesia. He has spent the last two summers in Costa Rica living on a ranch in Costa Rica and loved the cultural experience.
A few important points: We are Jewish; he will be leaving to either one of these places from Israel where we will be spending the first two weeks of June, 2010; and, he doesn't speak Turkish or Bahasa Indonesia, but wants to learn either one since they are considered "critically important languages."
