I remember during training when I typed Vicuña Mackenna, Cordoba (the place I currently call home) into GOOGLE MAPS, all I saw was farm land and a plaza. My heart skipped a beat. I am now one month away from ending my teaching semester in Mackenna, and I can safely call this place my second home, and my homestay my second family. This experience has been one that will stay with me forever and has inspired my growth as a young professional. I have made wonderful friends. I have taught my students, not only the English language, but the culture and customs from my country. I have come to love Sundays in the plaza, drinking Mate. I have come to appreciate the strong family values in this “pueblo.” I strongly recommend this program to anyone looking for a unique, holistic, cultural exchange. Additionally, I recommend this program to anyone who is wanting to become fluent in Spanish, anyone who loves grilled meat, and anyone who has a passion for opening up young minds to the world.
