There is no denying that the ability to understand and communicate in another language is a lifelong skill for education, employment and leisure throughout the world. Languages are part of the cultural richness of our society and the world in which we live and work. In fact, Spanish is quickly becoming one of the most widely spoken languages in the world and you are likely to use it throughout your lifetime.
We recognize that the best way to learn a new language is not in the classroom, but by immersing yourself in every aspect of the language, including history, traditions and culture. To be culturally immersed in a place allows us a new understanding of ourselves and the world around us by expanding our views and offering the opportunity for reflection. Our goal is to make you feel like a welcome guest with first-hand access to the traditions, people and cultural nuances of Spain. In order to create these experiences, we will work hand in hand with you to customize an itinerary that fits your educational objectives and comfort levels.
The gist of our Expedition Mentality is how to create the most positive and meaningful on-trip culture possible. There are many factors that contribute to the culture of any given group’s expedition—whether a school group, a family, or a diverse group of individuals.
The core of our mentality is recognizing that even on the most meticulously planned itinerary, even amongst the best of friends, classes, and families, unexpected things happen—you are on expedition, after all! We are superb at working with groups to make the most of the experience”to “turn lemons into lemonade,” regardless of what happens in terms of weather or any other unexpected turn of events. This takes vast experience and a strong positive attitude, and this is what sets us apart! This is what we do.
We approach all of our experiences this way and our clients love the result! The attitude we nurture, even amongst those who think they know each other well, is remarkable. We have put great thought into this approach and have had success with all kinds of groups. There is much more to educational adventure than most appreciate; but done right, there is nothing like it!
