Free Virtual Exchange Program between Mexican and United States Students

Global Nomads Group’s Overcoming Bias Through Language Learning program is a virtual exchange between Mexican and US students aged 13-15. In this program, students will engage in activities to identify personal, societal, and linguistic biases and strengthen skills in their  target language.

Students have multiple opportunities to engage in social-cultural language learning through story exchanges with their peers and live facilitated virtual conversations where they practice speaking in and listening to their target language with their Mexican peers who are native Spanish speakers.

Register now to participate in our program from September to December 2024 or January to April 2025, dedicating 8 hours for the online course and 35-50 minutes for each of the 3 live events. All on-line course materials are available in English and Spanish and you can customize implementation based on your students’ language levels. Global Nomads staff can help you determine how best to customize for your classes.

“Uno de los grandes beneficios para mis estudiantes, en particular, fue la posibilidad de tener una experiencia única y por primera vez poder interactuar, conocer, comparar y compartir eventos de su vida que para ellos eran significativos, con estudiantes de su misma edad, que viven en otro país, contexto, con diferentes condiciones económicas y sociales, etc. Este curso les permitió tener un acercamiento a una cultura diferente a la suya, mostrar respeto e interés en conocer otras culturas más allá de lo que los rodea, pudieron compartir sus ideas en diferentes tareas y compartirlas no sólo con sus compañeros de escuela y su familia sino en la plataforma para ser leídas por jóvenes que aparentemente no son tan diferentes de ellos. Este tema es de gran relevancia ya que no solo se utilizó como una herramienta para que algunos de ellos tuvieran su primer acercamiento al idioma inglés, sino que es un tema de gran relevancia social y su aprendizaje e implementación es para toda su vida."
