Organise your own languages exchanges with MyHOSTpitality
MyHostpitality, as we have said before, offers you several ways to learn Spanish:
- VISITING SPAIN:
a. Become a guest. The guest stays at a Spanish family therefore has the opportunity to get to know the lifestyle, the culture and the language, of the country that he/she is visiting, with the benefit of accommodation in exchange. In return, the guest will share and practice his/her native language with the host member, as agreed.
It is an ideal option for adults and young people.
b. Exchange. It is carried out between two members of the MyHOSTpitality.com community who send a family member for a period of time to learn another language abroad by living with another family. On a reciprocal basis, that family will, in turn, host a member of this family.
It is an ideal option for young people and teenagers.
You can choose your favorite destination. Spain is provided with numerous and fabulous cities where you can stay according to the type of tourism that you like, as Madrid, Barcelona, Lugo, Sevilla, Malaga, Valencia, Zaragoza… or small and lovely towns, if you prefer this kind of stays, as Mérida, Toledo, Úbeda, Cuenca, Cáceres, Salamanca, etc.
Then, you’ll need to select a host family (if you’re guest) or a family of exchange, choosing according to your tastes, and affinities. Both of you will establish the conditions and schedules that you will spend together.
