To truly understand and appreciate another culture, visiting it isn’t enough. You need to live it. And while all ACIS programs connect students with the cultures they are visiting, for a truly immersive experience, we recommend our homestay and language study experiences. Across our offerings in Spanish, French, and German-speaking countries, we give students the opportunity to learn about the culture of their target language from a native’s perspective.
Whether it’s living with a family, attending language classes, working on service projects, or simply just engaging with the local community, these trips are designed to give students an experience that will stay with them forever. Anyone who’s lived abroad will tell you that spending time immersed in a foreign culture is always the best way to learn the target language. For teachers and students looking to take the next step in their development as speakers of a world language, homestay and language immersion trips are the perfect opportunity.
