Group Outing (GO) Weeks

We’ve had the privilege of hosting many different groups in the past few years in addition to our individual and family study abroad travelers. Often we’re able to prepare more intensive cultural experiences for these groups outside of our normal language immersion programs. Now we’d like to open up those opportunities to everyone with our Group Outing (GO) Weeks.

Spend a week living in and exploring a Mexican-Maya community while improving your Spanish. Get to know a whole new group of fellow language learners through classes, activities, and excursions – making lifelong friends along the way.  You’re also giving back to the local community – 10 percent of your fee goes directly towards Na’atik’s nonprofit English language program.
