We’ll help you bring your classroom lessons to life!
At Live ‘n Learn, we create experiential learning through real life situations outside of the classroom. We believe that the best way to improve in a foreign language is by USING it! Our goal is for students and teachers to be constantly immersed in the language, during both the travel portion of the trip and the homestay. In order to get the most out of the program, we encourage school groups to use Spanish all the time, and to interact as much as possible with locals in shops, restaurants and on the streets.
Our program directors are enthusiastic and experienced travelers
All Live ‘n Learn Program Directors are passionate about travel, studying abroad and learning languages. They are fluent in both Spanish and English, but will be communicating with participants primarily in Spanish. Our Program Directors are enthusiastic and experienced travelers who will handle all of the logistical details, share cultural and historical details with the group and make suggestions on what to see and do during free time.
Our homestays provide a true immersion experience
Our homestay portion of the trip is unique in that students will not have any classes or organized group activities. Students will spend all week with their Spanish family and truly experience the culture and use the language. All families live in the same area, have children around the same age as the participant and look forward to welcoming an American student into their home. We find them through schools and interview and screen each family to assure they meet our quality standards. We feel that our homestay programs provide a life-changing experience for our participants as they get empowered by successfully communicating in another language and are exposed to another culture.
We provide exceptional support and guidance from start to finish
We will work with you every step along the way from planning the right trip for your group to assuring that everything is perfect while in Spain. We provide all promotional materials for recruiting and the parent meeting as well as a pre-departure packet full of useful information for you and your students.
Teachers travel for free!
For every six students, one teacher will travel for free and will receive a 25 euro stipend per student.
