FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Concordia Lutheran High School is welcoming 12 students and one teacher this week through the CLHS/Madrid Homestay Exchange program.
The goal of the program is to provide additional opportunities for students to develop a global perspective on their education. The partnership is with the Colegio fuentelarreyna, located in Madrid, Spain.
From Aug. 29 through Sept. 18, select CLHS students will host a Madrid student. The Cadets will act as tour guides during the visit, helping the Spanish students experience the American culture through trips to Chicago and Detroit, and various places around Fort Wayne. The Spaniards will stay with their Concordia exchange families each night for further immersion into the American culture.
In June, it will be the Cadets’ turn to cross the Atlantic. Students will spend two weeks in Spain for a full immersion experience into the Spanish culture.
To be considered for the program, students are required to have completed four semesters of Spanish and be currently enrolled in the class. The homestay is designed to be a real-life application of what was learned in the classroom.
