Teenagers siting on stairs

Why should we carry out a cultural exchange?

Today we focus on teenagers, why is it important that we give them the opportunity to live an experience like this?

Because living a cultural exchange will be a great gift for them, something very valuable with which they will stay for the rest of their lives.

Get to know other cultures, other families, other customs and ways of doing things, interact with them in other languages… and live the world! Something enriching and not only on an academic and cultural level but also on a personal level. Traveling, living together, interacting with others they will grow bigger and mature enormously.

We live in a globalized world and if we want our children to live and enjoy it, we must give them the opportunity to know and experience it.

Emma and 3 from her perspective as a mother and teacher in the UK, wrote about us in early February highlighting the importance and relevance of being able to live this kind of experience especially now that we have been able to see in many studies that in the UK’s track record of learning languages is pretty poor and they are left behind other countries  that do give importance to language learning in classrooms.

“As a mother, I want my three children to be global citizens. To me, this means to understand how others live and the customs and traditions they follow.”
