About

¡Hola! Come and learn about Mexican culture as no tourist can. Discover how the Aztec, Mayan, and Olmec civilizations, along with Spanish influences, form the roots of today's modern Mexican society.

During your exchange, you will witness firsthand many of Mexico's religious and secular festivities, such as Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Family life is very important to Mexican culture - most Mexican families have two to four children who typically live at home until they marry. Mexican cuisine is renowned for the spices used, as well as the colorful decorations and variety of delicious flavors - chilaquiles, pozoles, and tostadas are some of the few delicious foods you might try!

School normally begins about 8:00 a.m. and ends around 2:30 p.m. with a break during the day. Some schools also offer extracurricular activities such as sports, chess, language, and cooking clubs. After school, students typically spend two to three hours studying.
