The afternoon is yours to explore the city, relax by the pool, or chat with some locals.
In the evening, you’ll meet with your group and guide for authentic local cuisine. Your guide will share details of your schedule as well as provide tips about local customs and safety.
Today you will make your way into the city center of Asuncion where you will be teaching your classes. Following an orientation and training, you will meet the students you will be teaching. Each morning you will teach your students.
After enjoying lunch at a local restaurant, you’ll get to explore the city and surrounding area. Today you will explore the city center including Nu Guasu Park, Plaza de los Héroes, Manzana de la Rivera, and Playa Uruguaya.
Today is your first day of classes. As you ride into the city, you can review your syllabus and plans to get to know your new students.
Following a morning of teaching, you head of the first of three Jesuit missions, La Santisima Trinidad de Parana. Explore the ruins and learn about the history of the Jesuits in this area.

Today you will have lots of time to interact with your students in real-world conversations as they will join you on a very special journey to Iguazu Falls, considered one of the greatest falls in the world.

After a luncheon specially prepared by your students to say “thank you” and “goodbye,” you will have the afternoon to relax in a local spa, take in some more sights in the city, or do some final shopping for treasures to take home.
Hopefully, you have had an educational and fun week. Enjoy a final breakfast with your group and guides while you share your favorite memories and what you have learned. It is time to head to the airport for your departure flight home.
