These practical aspects of training demonstrate to students the connection between language and culture in a given society. Our program helps students explore the whole life of the community. Your home stay gives you the opportunity to practice local languages. Subsequently, the local language class is the village community as a whole.
An advisor coordinates your apprenticeship and provides the explanation you need about what you see, what you hear, who you meet. Throughout the day, you practice both language and culture with your host family. You begin to use language in a variety of contexts as you immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of cities and villages during your trips through the country. Your courses are focused on your conversational skills, and your active participation in/out of class activities is encouraged in the surrounding African community. Your journey, your excursion, your cruise toward the countryside, your exploration of famous beautiful places is sustained by an active practice of culture and languages.
When it is time to leave your host family, the country and the African land, you will feel that you have experienced a new way of life and learned more about Africa and its cultures.You learned more about yourself as well and that your journey has been wealthy, both metaphorically and literally.
