From Partners in Washington…
SPANISH LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL IMMERSION PROGRAM
“It goes without saying that I would recommend without reservations this program for Partners members wishing to improve their Spanish skills, learning more about Guatemala, and having a great time.”
-Doug Fabel, South Carolina Partners of the Americas
In light of the recent economic malaise, you may have decided not to invest in a vacation this year. But consider a vacation where, perhaps, you are investing more than your money. You’ve always promised yourself you would take the initiative to develop your Spanish language skills, but haven’t created the time or set aside the money. Do you want to experience another culture but find yourself making the same excuses? Tired of investing in adult education classes that don’t really improve your language skills? Why not take a learning and service-oriented “vacation” with Partners of the Americas, deep in the heart of one of the oldest civilizations amidst towering Mayan ruins; all while learning Spanish and helping a community in the process!
Engage yourself in one-on-one intensive Spanish lessons for two weeks, while taking excursions to ancient cities like Tikal, as well as beautiful lakes and volcanoes in Atitlan (see photos below!)
And the best part? For teachers and students, it may be tax deductible! A trip of this variety would normally cost you upwards of $2000, but considering the current economic crisis, you and a friend will pay no more than $1700 each! Want to travel in a larger group? It only gets cheaper.
Last year’s tour was a great success, and we were joined by people from across the US, including Partners volunteers who had the experience of a lifetime. To find out more, and if helping a community in need while building language skills and broadening your horizons appeals to you, please see the attachments to this message. We hope to see you there!
“There were about 15 other participants in the program spread evenly in age from pre-teen to mid-sixties… It was an extremely enjoyable trip that I am considering doing again next summer.”
– Brent Parker, Iowa Yucatan Partners of the Americas
