    On this semester, choose the city you'd like to learn a language in before doing service work in Thailand. Step out of your comfort zone and into local life all over the world. Create community, make an impact, and return home with a deeper understanding of the world and your place in it.

    Start out with a two-week tour of Europe’s most iconic cities; after that, you’ll move into a homestay in the city of your choice for an authentic language learning experience. Choose from Spanish in Barcelona, French in Nice, Italian in Rome, German in Berlin, Japanese in Tokyo, or Korean in Seoul. Your journey will then take you to Thailand, where you’ll make an impact alongside NGOs and community members.
