Our Short Term Immersion program allows students to immerse themselves in American life for a choice of 1 or 2 full months. This will include going to school alongside American students, studying the same curriculum as American students, and living with an American family. We highly recommend this program to students who are already studying English and would like an opportunity to put their language skills to the test while learning more about life in America.
