You'll live with a host family or in the school's dormitories while studying your foreign language with our expert language teachers. You'll make friends from all over the world who, like you, are interested in experiencing cultural immersion. You'll take part in workshops to help you develop your job potential in the international market. And you'll make contacts and gain experience interning in a local business or organization.
