Mexico

Spend a school year or semester in Mexico, a land of cordial

hospitality with a strong sense of family, community and heritage.

As an ASSE exchange student to Mexico, you may experience life

in one of its traditional, colonial towns or quaint villages. While at-

tending high school, you will soon make friends and get to know

the warmth and generosity of the Mexican people. As you be-

come proficient in Spanish, you will enjoy chatting with your ASSE

host family over meals.

In addition to flavourful cuisine, Mexico is proud of its cultural

dances which are an important link to the country’s heritage.

Youngsters learn such dances and perform on special occasions

with pride. As a member of your host family, you too may cel-

ebrate local festivals with your host family in traditional costume.

The rich, Mexican culture encompasses both Spanish heritage

and folklore as well as a history that stretches back many centuries

to the Mayan and Aztec civilizations. Learn about the uniqueness

of each state, such as Oaxaca with its beautiful folk art. As you

master Spanish, you will learn about Mexico City, the capital and

historic home of North America’s only king and queen! As an

exchange student in Mexico, the learning opportunities are as

numerous as the country is varied.

A year spent in this enchanting land and culture is sure to change

your perspective on life, family and the world.
