We are committed to the needs of our visiting students, so they feel comfortable, cared for, and engaged in our community. A true immersion experience is challenging, you will be joining a new community and adapting to our way of living. We make it a fun transition by connecting you to local youth activities . Everyday is unique with plenty to do and see. Interaction (not a classroom) is the key to building your "Spanish" people skills.
