This program fosters the development of personal, linguistic and intercultural skills.
We will focus on the following:
– Spanish language competence (3 levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced)
– Intercultural competence
– Confidence building activities
– Personal growth
– Team building activities
– Cultural awareness
Also several discussion groups will be proposed during these days. Topics may be: freedom, career, religion, materialism, alcohol abuse, respect and independence.
The effort in participating in those activities together with your fellows from other countries is what will make your experience special and unique. If you are ready to show concern for other people, to be open to new ideas and different customs, to be tolerant, eager to learn, look, listen and make yourself understood, then you are halfway there.
Still, many things will be different and new. One month is a short time but if you are patient and understanding you will gain a lot. Please ask when you have any doubts. This booklet is a first introduction to our country and gives some helpful hints about how to deal with various matters. Read it very carefully and do not stop here! Find other sources of information, investigate. The more you get to know about our culture, the more yo will enjoy it. Everybody in AFS INTERCULTURA will be ready to help you whenever you need advice or guidance.
