Travel Authentically, Live Like a Local
Our homestay portion of the trip is unique in that students will not have any classes or organized group activities. Students will spend all of their time 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.
LIVE N LEARN
I thought I’d get a fun trip, some extra Spanish skills, and something interesting to put on my resume. What I didn’t know I would get was a host sister that has become a forever friend and a passion for exploration and adventure which now are some of my core values.
If you are looking for an adventure to discover different cultures and people from another country, and looking to step out of your comfort zone to meet amazing friends that will last a lifetime, then this is exactly the trip for you!
My vocabulary and speaking skills skyrocketed during just the one week I was with my family. You get to see what life as a teenager is like in Spain, you get to try so many new home cooked meals, and it was probably my favorite part of the entire trip!
