OURENSE, SPAIN - The program will take place in Ourense, which is in the Region of Galicia, in Northwest Spain, 40 min away by train rom Santiago de Compostela, the capital of Galicia, and 2 hours from Porto Portugal. Schools in this region are becoming more and more multicultural, and in response, education has become trilingual: the subjects are taught in Galego (Galician), Spanish and English. By working in local classrooms, students will be able to compare the current education systems in the U.S. and Spain and learn the foundations of both systems. Field trips and home stays with local families will further allow students to be immersed in Spanish culture.
