If you speak Spanish you can communicate with 500 million people in the world! Whether you want to improve your career prospects, make travel easier, or want access to the countless masterpieces that have been written in Spanish, then Frontier's Spanish language immersion programme is right for you.

Spanish is the world's third most spoken language, after Chinese and English, and ranks second in terms of native speakers. At the end of the 19th Century, 60 million people were Spanish speakers. Today, nearly 500 million people across the world speak Spanish. Indeed, Spanish is the second most used language in international communication, and is an official language of the UN and its organisations.


You'll wake up to a morning bird chorus and a delicious Latin American style breakfast and then head down to the school to begin your language tuition. Taught by an experienced teacher you will get an excellent introduction to this elegant language, picking up on colloquialisms whilst mastering your pronunciation. In class exercises, reading, writing, and grammar will all be covered, ensuring that you grasp the fundamentals before moving on to more complex constructions and subjects as your confidence builds.

Why not spend your free time exploring unquestionably one of the most diverse parks in Honduras, Pico Bonito. Pico Bonito covers an extension of land that goes from sea level to as high as 7,500ft, and in effect boasts the largest change of altitude in Honduras. Named after the mountain that lies just south of La Ceiba, Pico Bonito has become a landmark for La Ceiba. A variety of tropical birds, including the keel-billed toucan are easily seen along the trail. With luck, white-faced monkeys might also be encountered. Please be aware park entrance fees are not included within the cost of this project so please bring along additional funds to cover such activities.


There are two options for arriving into Honduras, either to fly into San Pedro Sula or direct to La Ceiba. If you fly into La Ceiba you will be collected from the airport by a friendly local staff member, who will then escort you to your home in La Ceiba, a port town on the north coast of Honduras, where you will live for the duration of your stay.  If you are arriving into San Pedro Sula you will then make your way to La Ceiba via bus, detailed instructions for which will be provided prior to your departure.  If you choose the San Pedro Sula option please aim to arrive no later than 2pm in order to make the last bus. During your placement you will be no more than 10 blocks walking distance from your home to the school every morning and afternoon, giving you the chance to soak up the sun and explore the local environment. 


You will be staying with a friendly Honduran host family, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the culture and language of Honduras as you will be living just like a local! You will have a private room and bathroom facilities will be available. Your host family will be welcoming and friendly and will try to make you feel like a member of the family.


You will be provided with three meals a day. These meals will be typical Honduran dishes consisting of beans, rice, tortillas, meat, cheese and eggs. Food can also be obtained at local supermarkets. Sample some of the country's local food such as meaty tortillas, fried beans, and papaya.
