“This program has lived up to all expectations and allowed me to mature and awakened a new passion for teaching.”

I wanted an opportunity to immerse myself in a different culture, experience teaching in a low-pressure environment, and get outside of my comfort zone. This program has lived up to all expectations and allowed me to mature and awakened a new passion for teaching. AND If you want to experience a different culture at a fraction of a cost of moving abroad and with minimum risk (i.e. leaving your current job/country and finding employment), this is perfect. Living with a host family allows you to get insight into cultural norms and places to visit and they act as a fantastic support system when you need guidance or have questions.

“I hope you consider this program and give it a shot. It changed my life.”

To those of you who are curious about exploring the world around you and trying out the Conversation Coach program, I would say go to it without a doubt in the world. The program itself isn’t incredibly expensive and the people are there to guide you every step of the way. The family I lived with was amazing and gave me the most well rounded experience I could have had that summer. I had already been backpacking around Europe so being able to live in Madrid and experience it like a local was probably one of the best parts of the summer. The families chosen for you are so amazing and seem to go out of the way to make you the most comfortable that you can be. I hope you consider this program and give it a shot. It changed my life.
