The time has come to wrap up EdOdyssey’s study abroad month-long orientation in Lima Peru. During the past month, Sandra, Sarah, Grace, Citlalli, Jeniffer, Steve and Joe had opportunities to create friendships, familiarize themselves with how Peruvian Spanish differs from other countries in the region, and get to know Lima on their own!
Has your high school hosted exchanges with other schools, or do you think that your high school would be interested in hosting students from another school for the first time? In either case, EdOdyssey works with schools from around the world to facilitate short-term immersion programs that tend to last between 7-10 days.
One of my most memorable experiences in Peru was volunteering in the greater Lima area in Pamplona Alta. Volunteering while abroad offers the chance to see and experience parts of the country that you are in that you may not encounter on a day to day basis.
