Who is a CulturAlive  exchange suitable for?

Primarily our exchanges are suitable for children aged 12-17 with an interest and desire to further their Spanish language skills, specially fluency, whilst experiencing, enjoying and immersing themselves into Spanish culture.


In some instances, where Music and Spanish is a clear combined interest, Ad Libitum, a Spanish music camp might be recommended instead. This week long stay allows your son/daughter to experience and connect with Spanish through the universal language of music. As well as playing in the orchestra, there is opportunity for the students to participate in Spanish lessons and socialize with Spanish young musicians, allowing individuals to grow in confidence. Ad Libitum provides a full week of cultural and musical education!

When are the CulturAlive exchanges?

CulturAlive exchanges are preferably arranged to take place during the UK Summer Holidays and Easter holidays.

Please note if it is of interest to your child then other options might be considered; ie May/October half- term and so on.
We will do our best to find a time suitable for both you and
your child.

How long are the CulturAlive exchanges?

Normally these cultural exchanges last one to two weeks in each of the countries, with both families hosting for an equal amount of time (e.g. your son/daughter would stay with their family for one week and then their son/daughter would stay with your family for the same amount of time). CulturAlive’s unique services allow us to tailor each stay so talk to us and we can work out a time frame that works for you.

Please note the Ad Libitum opportunity is only available during the summer months.

What to do next?

Please note that all CulturAlive exchanges are individual and tailored specifically to your child’s needs, based on a gratuity between the families.
