THE EXCHANGE PARTNER PROGRAM
Our linguistic exchange partner program with Spaniards provides our students with the opportunity to get closer to the “Spanish way of life” and to practise what is learned in class. LSC Partners is an effective and personal way of learning, while at the same time a means of making new friends.
Here's how it works: you your partner meet to speak the language you are both learning, practising first the one and then the other. Together you not only improve your linguistic knowledge, but also get to know many other aspects of each other's culture and way of life.
