Language Exchange Programs Now Available
December 2, 2015
We’re pleased to announce that we have a new partnership with several schools across Latin America to provide immersion language learning opportunities for those who are interested!
The new program will begin in March of 2016, and we will be accepting applications for students through the end of January 2016. Please contact Mike, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to request an application.
Why Do a Language Exchange
Language exchange programs are an important educational tool if you’re serious about mastering a second or third language. The only way to truly develop fluency is to live in a place where you speak the language actively, every day.
While this can feel intimidating if you’re just beginning to learn a language, it also provides a great opportunity to see what you’re made of and get out of the box, so to speak.
For our program, all of the educational and living costs are covered by our partner schools, meaning that students only need to pay for their transportation to the country, and there are a number of scholarships available for those who need financial assistance to participate in the program.
Our Partner Schools and Countries
There is an opportunity available for two students to learn Spanish in Colombia through http://ecohostelmedellin.com. This school is located just an hour outside of Medellin, in the mountainous region of Antioquia. This is an excellent opportunity to experience a new culture and learn a language at the same time. Paola, the owner and instructor, speaks English, French, and Spanish, so this is a good chance for those students from French speaking countries whose English isn’t perfect to learn Spanish in a casual and rural setting.
There is also an opportunity available for four students to take Spanish classes in Mexico City with the Frida school. This is a world-reknowned program in the heart of the historic DF. Mexico City is home to thousands of years of history, and is one of the oldest cities in the Americas.
Students will be able to see great architecture and learn about a variety of Mexican traditional and contemporary cultures while the study.
