Growing and expanding young minds creates Future Leaders of tomorrow!

Virtual Cultural Exchange Program 

How do you experience American culture and the English language while being stuck at home? 

One word:  Virtually! 

Expanding young minds is more important than ever!  In order for them to continue to Thrive for their future, we created the virtual training they can experience safely at home.

LIVE On Zoom!

Starts December 14th 2020

​Fun Opportunity Abroad is proud to introduce to the world our new Virtual Cultural Exchange program!  

 

This Innovation brings the classrooms and cultural education into student’s homes. Right now, students are stuck at home until it’s safe to travel again.  FOA understands this and the NEED to prepare them for their future travels to America.   

 

In order to prepare international students for our programs, we offer virtual training to immerse students into American culture and language. 

 

FOA provides conversational ESL training as well as cultural immersion by meeting with local Host Families, meeting actual local students from high school, middle school, or local sports clubs. Additionally, there will be guest speakers  to talk about leadership skills, motivate, and inspire students.  Speakers are from local organizations, sporting teams, global companies! 

 

It’s not just cultural and language training that students need, they deserve inspiration and motivation to be energized for their future.

Learn English at your Digital 

Classroom

Students will learn and experience American culture with scheduled 

virtual Zoom meetings.  

ESL Learning English online is always challenging, but our online classroom setting allows international students to meet others and is designed to be interactive and FUN!  

 

Our talented ESL instructors focus on each students’ needs with introduction to Conversational English and vocabulary helping  students speak with host families and local students.  

Instructors encourage students to speak with locals in order to make the BEST out of the virtual experience.  Interaction is key for each student's ability to improve their English skills. They can practice how to interact with native English speakers.

Classrooms will remain small from 10 students and no more than 15 student maximum per virtual classroom.

 

ESL courses are one and half hour, three times a week.

Students meet the families who have hosted international students in the past. 

FOA Host Families have experience speaking and interacting with international students. Our families are SO excited to meet new students who join our Virtual program!
