Study Abroad in Mexico
It may be right next door to the United States, but Mexico deserves a closer look. It is home to a mix of ethnic, linguistic, and cultural groups living side by side, making for a complex melting pot of indigenous and European influences. The Mexican people are famous for their hospitality, and World Endeavors students will find this a welcoming setting for studying the Spanish language. It’s a beautiful setting, too, incorporating jungles, deserts, sparkling Pacific and Caribbean beaches, and quaint historic towns. With all that plus fantastic food and music, Mexico is a great place to see the world from a new perspective.
Live in Cuernavaca, Mexico
Cuernavaca’s roots run deep. Founded by the Tlahuica people, it was a center of learning as far back as the fifteenth century. Cuernavaca has survived the conquistadors and the rapid changes brought by modernity to become a charming modern city with a high-society flair. These days, it is a popular destination for students looking to learn Spanish and be immersed in the fascinating local culture. Cuernavaca is known as the “City of Eternal Spring” because of its climate, warm year-round but never too hot, with enough rain to make the area green and lush. Safe, student-friendly, and historic, Cuernavaca has plenty to keep students interested, including beautiful churches and the sixteenth-century Palace of Cortés. Mexico City is nearby, so it’s easy for students to explore other parts of the country.
