Foreign Language Programs
Aprender español, apprendre le français, and even 学习中国! Our unique and comprehensive culture and language programs immerse students in a destination, teaching them a new language along the way. Our extensive network is world-wide and allows for students with a desire to communicate and connect to learn from native speakers. These programs are private, guided, and customized.
- Contact our Special Projects Coordinator by email or call 866-313-2577 to discuss Foreign Language program opportunities.
Travelers enrolled in certain programs receive one of our educational Trip Guides. These small, easy to pack booklets are full of destination background information, high-def photography, interesting facts and figures, and questions that will set the gears in motion. These guides also have space for daily writing and are a great educational resource on your trip or in your classroom. They have been written and designed by current and former educators, and our educational staff.
Keeping up with fast pace learning environments, Global Travel Alliance Tour and Educational Directors carry iPads and other educational technology/resources while touring. They understand that students have bountiful access to technology, and plan their trip accordingly by offering a wide variety of extracurricular discovery materials.
