CILAC Freire offers the opportunity to greatly enrich and deepen your Spanish skills and cultural understanding by living with a Mexican family.
Living in a Mexican home offers a unique perspective into the daily lives of the people. You will have a chance to enjoy their food, customs and warm hospitality. Families also help students learn the language in very practical situations. Students are included in family outings and fiestas. We also offer homestays with gays and lesbians in the Cuernavaca community.
All CILAC Freire families are gay and lesbian friendly.
Food is an important part of the Mexican culture. Mmmm, que rico!
I really appreciated the excellent food & many fine social activities they brought me to or hosted. I had many opportunities to practice Spanish in "unrehearsed" settings. (Luke Rigas, Boston, MASS)
I loved my host family. They cared for me as one of their own. I really appreciate their positive attitude and care of the students. Sunia Hartman, PA
