The program can be adopted according to your needs.
Lodging and meals homestay guest.
This option is appropriate for students who are mature, independent and perhaps are already at an advanced level in Spanish. Support is provided to guide you in your language / cultural goals. Additionally, individualized coursework can be provided in literature, culture, translation and language.
Groups and Families: Groups, which may be led by an adult, are welcome and may follow the standard program to which adaptations can be made for special needs. Families are welcome, too, and age restrictions do not apply.
Which option is best for me?
No matter how you would like to structure your experience, this is a full immersion home-stay, which means that all of us at home will be speaking Spanish all the time. You may also want to bring a dictionary, textbook and Spanish language and / or music CD's so that on a daily basis you study a bit and then practice / listen when you are both in and out of the house.
Depending on whether or not, or how quickly you would be comfortable going out on your own is an important consideration in designing a program that works best for you.
We are here in all cases to make sure you are safe, comfortable and to facilitate your daily activities.
As part of our standard procedure for all participants, regardless of which option you pick, we also include:
a. A pre-trip memo that we send you and discuss on the phone, and
b. An in house first day orientation meeting, and
c. Are available before and during your stay to answer any additional questions about trip planning, language and culture.
We look forward to helping you to fulfill your goals.
Please call or write us at any time. It will be our pleasure to answer your questions, concerns, help you evaluate your options, provide more program details and to schedule your time with us.
