Life In Your Homestay
Many of our past participants have found their homestay experience to be the highlight of their time with Connecting Schools.
By participating in family activities and spending quality time sharing their daily life experiences in Spanish during meals, participants soon become an integral member of the family.
Homestay families support participants in their transition to the life and culture of their community.
You will be provided with a comfortable room, meals, and additional benefits depending on your family.
Participants receive four hours of Spanish lessons weekly while teaching.
While having a base knowledge of Spanish is helpful, prior knowledge of Spanish is not necessary.
This full immersion program allows for participants to quickly become comfortable communicating in Castellano by the end of the four and a half month program.
After two weeks of training in Buenos Aires, participants board their buses to their respective towns and begin their life as EFL teachers.
They will teach 20-25 hours of English lessons weekly in a range of different locations - primary, secondary, private, and public schools.
In the past, participants’ level of involvement has ranged from assisting in the classroom to being a fully independent teacher.
