Valdosta Middle School is hosting 25 students from Great Britain.

The teens are taking classes there and staying with American families.

This is the 14Th year the Academics Service Learning program has hosted the event and the students say they love it.

"Yes, the first time I've been to America, it's been really cool. The 9 hour flight was a bit tiring," said Melissa Poulter. "We've done loads of stuff since we've been here and I'm constantly tired because of the time change but it was worth it."

In April, some Valdosta middle school students will get a chance to stay in Great Britain with their UK friends.
