ST. MARYS — It’s Florian Hau’s first time in the United States and the teen is soaking up his experience in America.
The 15-year-old German exchange student has been learning English since he was 8. Ever since his older sister, Julia, returned from her exchange trip to St. Marys, Hau said he knew he wanted his own American experience.
Hau is from a small town outside Essen, in western Germany. It is a lot like St. Marys in size, he said, but the people are different.
