Give your best student the opportunity to learn Spanish abroad
Studying abroad is a wonderful experience from a personal and professional point of view. It’s a way to excel beyond hundreds of professionals that graduate every year and the perfect opportunity to learn a new language. That being said, we encourage faculty members all over the world to participate in these priceless programs.
Besides the language portion, there are several advantages that can be mentioned for studying abroad that you, as a teacher, don’t want your students to miss:
The opportunity to travel.
The chance to know another culture first-hand.
Facilitation of developing skills and giving experiences that a classroom setting will never provide.
The opportunity to make friends around the world.
Self-discovery: Students learn about themselves in ways they never could.
Expansion of their worldview and changing their perspective.
The value of breaking out of your academic routine.
Enhancement of the value of their degree.
The chance to experience a different educational system.
Benefits of starting a study abroad program
Besides all the benefits we know that relate to study abroad experiences for students, we can mention very good reasons for you as a professor to start your program abroad. For example:
Professional growth and international experience that can help you to improve your resume by showing how responsible and innovative you are.
Exposure to a new culture, even if you are from a Latin American country.
Visiting beautiful tourist destinations.
Get a break out of the academic routine.
The development of new skills.
Getting to know your students better before and during the trip, personally and academically.
Improving your knowledge of your own institution and how different areas of education work—from the provost to marketing.
Leading a project that is very notable for all the institutions.
Learning a lot from your students and their interactions with host families and teachers from the host institution.

General political, social, and economical situations
Hygiene conditions, potable water
Access to hospitals and clinics
Flight costs and frequency
A variety of cultural and touristic activities that can be included in the package for students
