________Fred, nineteen, spent last year in Germany with George's family. In turn, George's son Mike spent a year in Fred's home in America.

They took fourteen subjects instead of the six that are usual in the United States. There were almost no outside activities.
________The father's word was law, and all activities were around the family rather than one of the members. Fred found the food too simple at first. Also, he missed having a car.

Meanwhile, in America, Mike, a German boy, was also forming his idea. "I suppose I should criticize (批评) American schools, " he said. "It is far too easy by our level.________In Germany we do nothing but study. Here we take part in many outside activities. I think that maybe your schools are better in training for citizens. There should be some middle ground between the two. "
