EIL Programs for Mexican Participants (LAMAT)

Homestay / Individual PlacementThe homestay program is created for people who are 18 years old and over wishing to travel to specific country (or countries) alone or in a small group.  The program can be organized around specific interests like learning or practicing a language, taking arts or handicrafts workshops or just having a total cultural immersion experience with a flexible itinerary.

With this option participants choose the length of stay, the dates they want to travel, the topics they will like to explore while in the chosen country, the number of cities to visit, whether to include a community service and even the number of homestays.

With an individual homestay the possibilities are endless–here your imagination is the limit!

Group TravelCan you imagine traveling to a foreign country with a group of students of your age accompanied by a responsible leader? How many situations will you experience ? How many people will you meet? How much of the language will you learn?

Well, as many as you wish, because everyday will be different and you will have the opportunity to learn, discover, explore, exchange and… experience.

Every year LAMAT develops a wide variety of programs so our participants can choose the country or kind of program that suits their needs. College students can even apply for programs with academic credit and curricular value.

High School AbroadBy living with a family and studying at the local high school, students become fluent in another language, open their minds to another culture, make lifelong friends and learn more than ever about themselves and the world around them.

Why Study Abroad?

  • Become fluent in another language
  • Live and study in another cultural environment
  • Make lifelong friends
  • Expand your horizons
  • Grow as a citizen of the world

Whether it is for a semester, a school year or just a couple of months, The International High School program places students with caring, carefully selected host families that provide full room and board. Local coordinators provide assistance and supervision through the program and students typically attend a local school, chosen jointly by the host family and the local coordinator.

Experiment offices in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Ecuador, France, Germany, Guatemala, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, South Korea, Spain and the UK offer these study abroad opportunities to students between the ages of 14 and 18.

Language TrainingOne of the best ways to immerse yourself in a culture is through language and the best way to do it is learning it and/or practicing it in the place where it is spoken.  If on top of that you combine it with spectacular places, interesting people and fun activities, it is even better.

Can you imagine learning French in Paris, Saint-Malo, Arcachon or Montpellier? Can you imagine choosing between staying with a French family and practicing French while you share your culture with them or staying at an international residence where after class you can meet students from all around the world?

Learning a language is one of the best investments you can make in your life. Its interesting, its profitable and its fun. What language are you looking for?

France, Italy, Japan, Brazil, England, Canada, Turkey and Morocco are just some of the countries where you can participate in one of these programs.

Language programs are tailored to your needs, so if you are interested in knowing more about these programs, please contact us and we’ll help you organize the best choice for you.

VolunteerAt LAMAT we believe in the importance of volunteer work, not only because of the impact that it has within the community, but also and mainly because of its role in the creation of a new consciousness of universal solidarity, especially in young people. We also trust in the relevance that the values of voluntary work have in the creation of a better society — commitment, willfulness, solidarity, organization and action.

LAMAT offers a set of volunteer opportunities for individuals to do community service in 21 countries. These placements are mainly in the areas of social service, environment and education; however, the possibilities are endless.

The different programs for volunteer work offered by LAMAT seek to have the greatest possible impact, not only in the community involved, but also and mainly upon the person who carries out this work.  Because of this, it is of LAMAT’s interest to include an enormous range of possibilities that offer the opportunity to share all types of knowledge to all types of profiles.

Customized GroupsAt LAMAT we understand that not all countries, organizations or institutions with which we work have the same interests or needs. For this reason, LAMAT offers the option of creating a program based on special requests.  For these programs we will prepare a special proposal based on the main needs and interests put forth by the party (country, organization, school or university) involved.  Among the data we need is the approximate number of participants, age, duration and specific interests. The more information we have, the more accurate our proposal can be.

It is worth noting that special programs does not mean that the cost will be higher. LAMAT considers these programs as new ideas, which are always welcome in our organization.

If you are interested in receiving a program proposal from LAMAT or if you have any questions feel free to contact us, we will gladly assist you and guide you.
