Hosting a Foreign Exchange Student Presentation


Open the file SC_PPT16_2a_FirstLastName_1.pptx, available for download from the SAM website.

Save the file as SC_PPT16_2a_FirstLastName_2.pptx by changing the “1” to a “2”.

  • If you do not see the .pptx file extension in the Save As dialog box, do not type it. The program will add the file extension for you automatically.

To complete this Project, you will also need to download and save the following support files from the SAM website:

  • Support_SC_PPT16_2a_Family.jpg
  • Support_SC_PPT16_2a_Map.png

With the file SC_PPT16_2a_FirstLastName_2.pptx still open, ensure that your first and last name is displayed in the presenter notes on Slide 1.

  • If the presenter notes do not display your name, delete the file and download a new copy from the SAM website.


You are enhancing a presentation for Crossroads International, which promotes cultural awareness through foreign exchange student programs. To create an attention-getting title on Slide 2 (no title), insert a WordArt text box as follows:

  • Use the Fill – Green, Accent 4, Soft Bevel style. (Hint: Depending on your version of Office, the Fill – Green, Accent 4, Soft Bevel style may be named Fill: Green, Accent color 4; Soft Bevel instead.)
  • Type By the Numbers in the WordArt text box.
  • Apply the Wave 1 Transform text effect from the Warp section. (Hint: Depending on your version of Office, the name of the text effect may appear as Wave: Down.)
  • Use Smart Guides to position the WordArt at the top of the slide as shown in Figure 1 on the next page.

With Slide 2 (“By the Numbers”) still displaying, use the Format Painter to apply the formatting from the text “30,000” to the text “13–18” and “8,000”.

With Slide 2 still displaying, enter the slide note:

  • Foreign exchange programs are popular and rewarding.

On Slide 3 (“Host Families”), reinforce the theme of the slide by changing the picture of the U.S. map with the picture from the file Support_SC_PPT16_2a_Family.jpg, available for download from the SAM website.

On Slide 4 (“Exchange Students”), format the picture of students as follows:

  • Apply the Perspective Shadow, White picture style.
  • Apply the Blue-Gray, 11 pt glow, Accent color 5 Glow effect. (Hint: Depending on your version of Office, the Blue-Gray, 11 pt glow, Accent color 5 Glow effect may be named Glow:11 point; Blue-Gray, Accent color 5 instead.)

With Slide 4 still displaying, change the font of the text below the picture to Calibri.

On Slide 5 (“Make Connections”), format the slide background as follows:

  • Insert the file Support_SC_PPT16_2a_Map.png, available for download from the SAM website, as the slide background.
  • Change the transparency of the background picture to 70%.

With Slide 5 still displaying, use the Thesaurus to replace the word “unforgettable” in the last bullet with the first synonym beginning with the letter “e”.

To keep the presentation brief and focused, delete Slide 6 (“In Their Own Words”).

On the new Slide 6 (“Resources”), format the picture of the Exchange Programs website as follows:

  • Add a picture border using a 3 pt weight.
  • Change the color of the picture border to Dark Teal, Background 2, Lighter 40% (3rd column, 4th row of the Theme Colors palette).

With Slide 6 still displaying, copy one of the circle shapes and paste it on the same slide. Modify the pasted shape as follows:

  • Change the text to:
  • Learn more
  • Use Smart Guides to position the “Learn more” circle below the other two circles as shown in Figure 2 below.

With Slide 6 still displaying, insert a shape to the right of the “Get started” circle as follows:

  • Insert a Right Arrow shape from the Block Arrows section.
  • Apply the Moderate Effect – Dark Red, Accent 1 shape style.
  • Resize the arrow to the approximate size shown in Figure 3 below.
  • Use Smart Guides to position the arrow as shown in Figure 3 below.

To create a friendlier tone, find each instance of the word “advice” and replace it with the word tips. (Hint: Do not include the period. You should make two replacements in the presentation.)

Check the Spelling in the presentation to identify and correct any spelling errors. (Hint: You should find and correct at least one spelling error.)

In Slide Sorter view, your presentation should look like the Final Figure on the next page. Save your changes, close the presentation, and then exit PowerPoint. Follow the directions on the SAM website to submit your completed project.
