Within this program, students are completely immersed in the Spanish language and do not have opportunities to speak their own mother tongue: this allows a quick improvement of the language skills. Students get the unique opportunity to discover a new way of life and a new culture first hand, not like a tourist! The homestay program is

the most affordable language travel! This program is ideally suited to mature and independent students, eager to meet new people from abroad and with enough language proficiency to communicate with host family members. The pure homestay program

is a true cultural exchange. Students are placed in selected private high schools and hosted by volunteer warm Chilean host families. International students usually go with their host sibling to the same school, sometimes in the same grade.



International students go to school with their host siblings or children of the neighborhood. They attend regular classes with their classmates and participate in all school activities . This is a cultural program, not an academic program. Students should not expect to receive any grade transcript. General basic education is compulsory and lasts for eight years. Secondary education (Educación media) lasts for four years. Grades 9 and 10 are standardized. From grade 11 though (Tercero Medio) students may choose to focus more on sciences or humanities. In this case either Mathematics, Physics, Biology,

Chemistry or Literature, Philosophy, History respectively receive greater attention.

Mandatory classes are usually Language and Communication, Mathematics, Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology), History, Geography, Social Science, English, P.E., Visual Arts or Music, and Technology during the first 2 years of High School and Philosophy and Psychology during the last 2 years of High School. The school year runs from mid February to mid-December.
