    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Benefit from interaction with us, the town and our Mexican students in a beautiful colonial setting in Mexico. Arts, crafts, cultural heritage and wonderful weather in a town bristling with young people and universities and in case a brief stay in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo comes up, enjoy time at the beach with warm ocean waters all year long, good surfing and other water sport opportunities.

    Would you like to live, learn and teach in a colonial Mexican town, in a perfect climate, surrounded by art, history, ancient culture and beautiful countryside? We teach German language to young Mexican professionals. The students are preparing to live and work in Germany once the language skills are sufficient. They are Graduates from different State (public) universities throughout Mexico and age 21 to 28. You can help them prepare for the experience of living in Germany and assist in creating a valuable experience personally as well as professionally for our Mexican friends, as you spend 4 hours per workday with them, teaching German, talking about live in Germany, help with home work (Nachhilfe) and classes (conversation exercise) or if you are not a qualified german teacher you can help in and around the institute. You may also help out during brief intervals at the German consulate in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, a beautiful beach resort on the Pacific coast (4 hours from Morelia), where we prepare the visa applications and documentation for the work stay of our Mexican participants.
    We would like you to stay at least 4 weeks, but preferably longer.
