McDonogh's newest exchange program is a three-week immersion experience in Peru, led by Spanish teacher and Peruvian native Patricia Tasher. Students travel through the country, visit sacred sites, savor the diverse cuisine, participate in community service activities with children in the community, and take Spanish classes at the award-winning Excel Language School.
Students spend a week with a Peruvian host family in Cuzco while attending classes. A home stay program is a wonderful opportunity to explore everything that Peru has to offer and to learn about the culture and daily life of Peruvians. Students learn much from the home stay experience, whether it be at family outings, get-togethers, or just hanging out with their hosts.
