Rutherford, NJ, January 20, 2017 –
Gain Contact has partnered with Xperitas to offer two family immersion programs – one to Costa Rica July 22-29, 2017 and another to France/Belgium August 3-13, 2017. The Costa Rica 8-day guided family immersion experience will be led by a certified naturalist and explore biodiversity, natural wonders, eco adventures, organic farming and local life. The France/Belgium 10-day City to Castles Family Adventure will commence in Paris followed by Brussels, whimsical visits to Belgian castles as well as a 3-day cultural immersion live-in experience with a local Belgian family.
Through the international partner network of Xperitas, Gain Contact will also welcome an incoming group of students from Spain, ages 13-18 to its Sights & Sounds NYC Summer program June 26-July 24, 2017. This Summer ESL program enrolls international students who wish to improve their English language skills at Gain Ville Learning Center in Rutherford, NJ while being immersed in cultural excursions in New York City.
As part of this experience and in collaboration with our not-for-profit educational partner, Xperitas, students are placed in a U.S. family to provide an authentic language and cultural immersion experience. This in turn provides U.S. host families with exchange credits and discounts to reciprocate the experience for their child in the future.
While Gain Contact will coordinate the recruitment, placement and ongoing communication with students and local host families, all logistics will be handled by our educational partner for a seamless Spanish immersion experience for U.S. families that is both turnkey and enjoyable.
Gain Contact has taken language learning outside the boundaries of the classroom by partnering with Xperitas, a non-profit educational organization with over 45 years of combined expertise in educational and immersive travel experiences. Gain Ville’s commitment to educating global citizens one culture at a time is enhanced by the dedication of Xperitas in promoting global citizenship through authentic immersion experiences.
