Immersing myself within Mexican culture whilst learning local language and business

Estudio de español y negocios en méxico

If I was unable to use google translate I would fail to understand the Spanish language. It is a common stereotype that British people hate learning foreign languages and think everyone should speak English. I have always had an interest in learning Spanish, however have never had the time, money or perfect opportunity to devote myself to leaning it. Now, as I am leaving university and have the freedom to travel I wish to pursue this ambition of mine by studying for 4 weeks in Mexico.

Not only will I be studying Spanish but also Business, I am making the most out of this trip by studying multiple disciplines and expanding my knowledge. During my stay I will be soaking up the local Mexican culture whilst living with a host family in Monterrey, mi casa es tu casa.

Outside of study, I am looking to share my passion for sports by involving myself within the community and encourage sports participation. In my spare time I am looking forward to travel and enjoy the beautiful treasures such as the Cola de Caballo Waterfalls, Garacia's Caves and the museum of Mexican History.

A bit about me

I am a positive and lively character in my final year of studying Sports and Exercise Science. I am a very hands on person who likes to get involved in activities. Whilst my main aim is too return to England with the ability to fluently speak Spanish and learn business, I am looking to use existing skills and knowledge to help the local community and build connections.

Where will the money go?

My minimum target I need to reach to cover some of the basic expenses is £1,250. The money will be split between travel costs of flights to and from Mexico, accommodation, health insurance and visas.

  • Flights - approximately £1,000
  • Accommodation - £600
  • TEC University Health Insurance - £125
  • Visa - £35

If a surplus from my target is achieved I would love to be able to cover all of the costs of the trip allowing me to explore more of Mexico.
