Living with a local family is the most authentic way to learn a foreign language and experience a different way of life. There is no substitute for sharing meals, telling stories, and participating in daily activities. Andean Discovery Student Expeditions encourages educators to consider a homestay, whether organized as cultural immersion experiences or integrated with service learning projects.

We have developed long-standing relationships with communities throughout the Andean region and have thoroughly vetted families who have a genuine interest in hosting. Safety, health, and positive experiences are our top priorities. Throughout the homestay, we support students and teachers and communicate closely with host families.
