Meddeas organises school exchange programs focused on Secondary students (12-18 year olds) between Spanish and American schools. These programs take place during the academic year (3 to 5 weeks) or during the summer (2 to 3 weeks), according to the profile, needs and preferences of each school. Meddeas matches an American school with a partner school in Spain for a reciprocal exchange.
Students live with families selected by the local school, receive full board accommodation and have a health and liability insurance. Moreover, both the local coordinator and the visiting school coordinator will have phone support from a bilingual member of Meddeas’ staff 24/7.
This experience gives students the opportunity to discover firsthand the Spanish language and culture. Living with a host family and/or attending school, students will get immersed in another lifestyle, leaving them with a greater understanding of a language and a culture that is impossible to learn from textbooks.
