Your Spanish language skills will come alive in the beautiful colonial city of Guanajuato, México. Transform from tourist to contributing member of the community as you discover the social, political and economic reality of México through a wide range of activities and local excursions. Meander through the Spanish Colonial style streets, become a teacher and a friend to rural elementary children for a day, learn to be a chef and a salsa dancer, and much, much more! You will attend three hours of instruction each morning at a local language school within walking distance from each homestay. The classes will focus on Mexican culture, cooking, dancing, art history, and local customs. Each afternoon, our group will visit important cultural sites like the mummy museum, the Alhóndiga museum, Diego Rivera museum, El Pípila monument, and more. One day will be dedicated to visiting a rural community up above Guanajuato, where you will play with local children and help with any upkeep needs at the school.
