Having the support of a local family help you adjust and connect to the community and makes you a part of the culture!
We call this LOCAL LIVING because when you participate in this program, you are not only renting a room in somebody’s house, you are being welcomed into their home as if you were a member of their family. The homestay gives you the opportunity for additional practice speaking Spanish outside of the classroom, as well as the opportunity to experience some of the cultural aspects of Ecuadorian life, such as food, family life, and holidays. This program is all about learning and enjoying the local culture maximizing your opportunity to learn spanish!
In our Local living program we prefer to place only one student per family because when students live together we have found that the temptation to speak their native language is too great. However, if it is important to you to live with other students or with a traveling companion, arrangements can be made to accommodate your needs.
