For a fully immersive experience, you’ll live with a Spanish family. Each host family has been carefully selected by WorldStrides resident staff to best accommodate your needs and to ensure a comfortable living situation. Homestays will provide three meals a day and laundry service once a week. You'll typically share a room with another GAP student (roommates are of the same gender).

Now that you've explored all the locations and plotted the perfect course for your adventure abroad, all that's left to do is make it a reality by securing your spot for this life changing program.
