ACCOMMODATION STYLE: HOMESTAY

What better way to learn the language and culture than to live with a host family. Host families provide a warm and welcoming environment, providing meals in the home as well as an opportunity to immerse yourself in everything the country and culture has to offer. Just like families in Canada, host families abroad represent many different compositions, nationalities and live in a variety of different areas from small towns or villages to larger cities. Families come in all shapes and sizes but one thing they all have in common is that they are motivated to be part of the experience and look forward to welcoming you into their home! 

ORIENTATION: 5 DAYS IN ROSARIO

* Included in the 5 and 10 month programs, and an option for short term program students, students kick start the exchange experience with a 5 day language and culture camp in Rosario. Arrive in Rosario at the start of your exchange, meet other exchange students, get a crash course in the language and culture, and do a little sightseeing so that you can start your exchange off right!

For short term programs – 1, 2 and 3 month programs who do not participate in the Rosario camp, you will receive a local orientation in your host community to help you get acquainted with the sights, sounds, and way of life in your local area.
