Life in Lima centers around family. Students are very integrated into the lives of their families.
Most students go to birthday parties with their families, go to the beach, go out for the weekend, watch movies together and go to church retreats with their families.
This not only helps the students learn more Spanish and Peruvian culture but also helps the students to feel like they have a personal guide when they have questions and a personal accounts of the history we read in our assigned readings. The students have enjoyed their first week with their families.
