Living with a host family helps improve your Spanish because you are forced to communicate your feelings and your needs in Spanish.
It means that you have to apply what are you learning in your Spanish classes.
We have different types of Mayan Host Families. Some of them have between 1 and 3 children, and most of the families live with grandparents. The number of people in the household is usually around 5 people.
Our Host Families live between 3 and 12 minutes walking distance from the school.
Currently we have just one family who has no WiFi, but you are free to use Orbita´s WiFi any time.
Our families are open-minded, which means that for them it´s not a problem if you go out to parties.
You will have your own room and your own key so this will not affect anybody.
Only a few rooms do not have a private toilet.
We really hope you would like to experience our culinary tradition. You will love the food. One thing we hope you like are corn tortillas (made fresh & delicious daily), because most meals are based around homemade tortillas. Our former students have been very happy with the food.
By living with a Host Family you will be learning not only Spanish, but also sharing part of the Mayan Culture.Register Online Today!
