What are the language requirements?

There are ABSOLUTELY no language requirements, our programs are open to students of all levels. Every year, we accept students that are taking Spanish for the very first time to native Spanish speakers. You will be given an onsite language assessment during your orientation when you arrive to your program. For those interested in electives in Spanish we suggest that you have 3 semesters of college-level Spanish or the equivalent. For those interested in classes with local students we suggest that you have 5 semesters of college-level Spanish or the equivalent.

Do you have course descriptions on-line?

Yes, each academic section contains the course descriptions for the classes offered. Please CONTACT US if you need a course description for a specific class, or if there is a course description you cannot find. Class offerings by our universities are very extensive and not all course descriptions are listed.

What type of housing do you use?

All of our programs are homestay programs with a local family and three meals a day are provided by your host family. (In Argentina, lunch is provided at the university). Our families are carefully selected and interviewed, and have extensive experience in hosting students. Many of our families have been housing international students for 10+ years. The majority of our students develop lifelong relationships with their host families and host siblings. If you have ABSOLUTELY any problem with your family, simply talk with your director and we can change you to a different home. If, for some reason, you would like to use housing separate from that of our host families then please CONTACT US.

What happens if I have special dietary needs?

We have families for all types of students! In each program site, we have many families that can accept vegetarian, vegan, and kosher students, or whatever dietary needs you may have! If you have any special dietary needs just let us know beforehand and we will place you with a family who can cater to your situation.
