To encourage the maximum use of newly acquired Spanish language skills and immersion into the Nicaraguan culture, all students live with Spanish-speaking families. CEIDEPRO arranges accommodations with carefully selected host families; in general only one student is placed per family.
Nicaragua opened my eyes the world beyond the North American borders and westernized society. I have learned so much about Latin American and Nicaraguan culture, both good and bad, and now see my world in a different light. I am grateful for all I have in the United States and all the opportunities I have been blessed with. I will never forget the people who have bestowed love on me nor the beautiful smiling faces of my friends in El Fortin. I was so grateful to end my college career in El Fortin where my world view was challenged for the first time.
Academic field trips will introduce you to a few of the many faces of Nicaragua. These may include visits to places such as factories in the Free Trade Zones, women's centers, and rural areas to see how cooperatives have been formed.
