My job in Italy was very fulfilling!

The best part of the program to me was being part of a family and community that truly wanted me there. Although, I believe a session to brainstorm lesson plans and activities in the school would be helpful (during orientation). Especially for those who have never taught before. Savannah and everyone from Greenheart was so helpful and passionate about this project. You really do have a support system to help guide you every step of the way!!!

Japan is amazing!

My favorite part about the program was like how, though I was in school environment, I still had the ability to go out and explore Japan. There was free time, but it was structured too. I also enjoyed that my program allowed for me to explore the country through a language lens and through the lives of the people that live there. My host family was excellent! Absolutely no complaints about them or my experience living with them. Greenheart travel has such a wide variety of study abroad location with different goals in mind. I think that by using greenheart you will truly fits what you're looking for! I really felt like I knew everything before leaving and they did a good job preparing me!

This experience will change your life for the better!

Choose Greenheart Travel. They will be with you every step of the way, from the beginning to the end. Sara is great! She is always there if you need her. I really enjoyed the orientation, and constant support I received from the Xplore Asia team (Greenheart's partner in Thailand).

I had an amazing experience that helped me professionally and personally

It would be pretty much impossible for another organization to be more organized, friendly, and responsive than Greenheart, you should immediately forget about using a different program. Greenheart Travel was incredible and in particular Sarah does an amazing job. She is always extremely kind and responsive and gets things done. I honestly don't know how she manages to keep on top of everything given how many people are in/applying to the program but somehow she manages to do it all with incredible efficiency and an amazing, positive attitude. I am in awe! I wouldn't have been able to make it happen if it weren't for this program and Greenheart's working with me to help me get to Colombia.

The experience of a lifetime in Sicily

I know the title is cliche, but it's true! If you are reading this, wondering whether or not to take the jump... just do it. I promise that you won't regret it! I truly appreciate the help of the program managers in preparing me to the best of their abilities for what would come before, during, and after the experience. They made sure I was physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared for the experience. The attention to detail in the selection process for my host family was evident as soon as I arrived in Sicily and got to know my family. Although Sicily was my last choice of placement (strictly due to the ease of travel), I was placed with a family there. They were an absolutely perfect match, and are like true family now! Greenheart Travel truly looked at my preferences, and told me that they knew this was best. They remained in contact with me throughout the entire process, and gave me outlets to share my experience! I was able to blog for the agency, and network with other members of the agency. The entire program was wonderful, and I suggest going through Greenheart to do such an experience. Their approach to travel is what I appreciated most, and it impacted how I went about teaching English and living my life in Sicily. I lived with a family in Ragusa, Sicily. Ragusa is absolutely beautiful, and I felt more safe in this town than I do in my hometown. Both the province and town have rich history, and everything you would want in a visit to Italy. My host family was more than accommodating, and better than I could have imagined. Personally, I was there to primarily teach the mother of the family, but I truly ended up teaching an entire community. I lived in a family with a mother, father, and 4 year old daughter. Of course, all of the family members learned English from me. Anytime that I would be in public and speaking with my family, I would have total strangers ask to practice English with me! It is a highly valued skill to non-native speakers, and Ragusa doesn't have many English speaking tourists. I taught much more than 15 hours a week, usually more than 15 hours a day! My family was a perfect match for me, and I tried to savor every moment with them. I spent so much time "teaching" (it didn't feel like teaching) because of my personal approach to this experience. My approach to teaching English was to make it as applicable and conversational as possible. Language learners cannot have this experience through a classroom setting or studying from a book, so that was I sought to offer them. My host family encouraged me to travel once or twice while in Sicily, so I chose to travel once. It was perfect for a two month time frame. Greenheart emphasized this to me, so I'll emphasize it to you having done this experience - Do NOT do this experience to use your family as a place to stay while you can travel. These families truly consider you a part of their family and want to make the most of this experience. Value what they are doing for you, and what they give up to have you in their home. Spend every moment that you can with them, and clearly communicate your hopes for travels while staying with them. My best overall advice to anyone considering a program with Greenheart Travel is to consider your heritage. Try to choose a program (if it's a place that you're interested in traveling to), that is a country of origin for your family. It is a great opportunity to not only learn about your family, but also about yourself. I have a lot of Sicilian heritage, so I feel that my experience was even more meaningful and that I learned about myself. Teaching English abroad is an incredibly rewarding experience, and I will continue to share my stories of teaching abroad for the rest of my life.
