I will stay in touch with my host family for life
Submitted by rozanna6566 - Athabasca Canada | November 25, 2016
I just arrived home last Thursday as I spent a month in Spain after leaving France.
GeoVisions did a superb job matching a French family and a Canadian English instructor!!! Thank You for being the liaison in connecting us. Besides having 4 wonderful children to work with I also had access to the countryside for daily walks with their chocolate lab dog. Living with and meeting friends and relatives of my host family was an excellent way for me to experience the French culture, and partake in French cuisine daily. My relationship with the family shall continue.
I believe it is a plus that the application process with Geovisions allows for candidates to look at the family resumes and see if they would be comfortable living with the family and vice versa. Access to a Geovisions staff member is readily available, another plus!
I would certainly recommend Geovisions to anyone wishing to share their English skills in exchange for experiencing a new culture.
Thanks for providing opportunities for enhancing one's life.
Program: Tutor English To A Family In France

When I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and volunteer teach in Italy for a month I had no idea what I was venturing in to. Working with geovisions and You Can Camp exceeded any and all expectations. While living in a country where you don't speak the language and with people you've never met before can be really scary, there was never a day I didn't feel right at home. You Can Camp is organized by wonderful people that have a heart for the kids as well as the volunteers. They went out of their way to make sure our time in Italy was wonderful; they even helped us with organizing activities for us to do during the week after camp like touring the Frassasi Caves and visiting wineries. The other tutors and I spent our weekends traveling. This experience opened my eyes to a different culture and taught me more than I could have imagined; both professionally and personally. I have grown to better understand children, especially ESL learners, and have taken things I learned from camp into my own art classroom. Living in Macerata was a blast! My roommates and I cooked breakfast most mornings and dinner for "family dinner night" in our apartment kitchen a couple of nights a week; we also ate in town some nights and got to know the gelato shop really well! ;) After enjoying an amazing lunch at the restaurant we loved to explore the little town and often took the train to enjoy the beach in Civitanova. I left Italy with new and wonderful friends from all over the world! I definitely recommend this program to anyone looking for an amazing experience abroad.

Summer in Thailand!
Submitted by Jessica - New Haven, CT United States | August 24, 2016
This program was not only a month of fun, touring, teaching, and excitement, but one that really opened my eyes to the world around us. The program kept us going and experiencing all that Thailand had. We did everything you could think to do during our time there. Teaching the kids was an incredibly rewarding experience and I will never forget the joy on their faces seeing us at the school every morning. I loved how we also worked with organizations to help them solve real problems that they are dealing with and help them with the solution implementation - the "fieldwork" set-up went beyond sitting in a classroom and working on a case study. They program had the perfect balance of work and play! We got to tour the area, enjoy the food, and culture that Thailand is! Leaving was definitely hard and I hope to return soon.

Unique experience in Thailand
Submitted by Tszyu - Epsom College | August 19, 2016
The program was very special and I got to experience Thailand both culturally and through working with different NGOs there. Staff was very helpful and supportive throughout the journey. We got to visit tourists attractions as well as teach English to Thai school children. Overall, it was a very unforgettable and irreplaceable experience, where I get the chance to develop useful skills such as communication and presentation skills as well as immerse myself in the Thai culture.
