Spend your summer in Paraguay’s capital city practicing Spanish as it’s spoken by locals. On this 7-week program, you’ll get the full immersion experience by taking language lessons and living with a local host family in or near Asunción. Your language teachers will focus on interactive learning and complement their lessons with cultural exploration. On Saturdays, you’ll visit nearby markets that specialize in ethnic handicrafts, giving you the opportunity to put your language skills to the test.

About a month into your stay, you’ll have the opportunity to go on a weekend-long trip outside of your host community. Past trips have been to places like San Bernardino (a popular summer resort), Encarnacion (near the Jesuit missions in Itapua), and Ciudad del Este (near Itaipu, the biggest dam in the world), and Iguazu Falls. This is your chance to accelerate your Spanish while traveling the world and becoming part of an international community!
