Be the envy of all your friends when you live in the one-of-a-kind coastal city of Valparaíso. Dive into intensive language study and accelerate your Spanish skills while experiencing authentic everyday Chilean life. Living with a friendly host family, you’ll find yourself shopping at local markets, preparing and sharing meals, and learning the local customs and traditions.
Outside the classroom, there’s time to explore on your own, meet new people, and hang out with friends. You’ll go on city walking tours, view murals and street art, visit museums, have picnics on the beach, and go to concerts. Group activities include trips to see great art and architecture, as well as a visit to world-famous Chilean poet Pablo Neruda’s house.
