Travel for less.
You put in a couple of hours each day literally talking, and the rest of your time is spent traveling and experiencing the culture in depth.
Do you want to learn Arabic or brush up on your language skills? We can easily arrange optional language classes for you. It's up to you.
Tip the advantage to you by enhancing your resume by volunteering with the Conversation Corps. Job: "Private Language Tutor." References: Global. It just doesn't get any better than that.
You "meet" your family in advance through email and phone calls. Each family is interviewed and carefully screened by in-country staff.
Exclusive materials written by GeoVisions staff will give you "a bag of tricks" as you engage your new family.
Join us on Facebook and begin the conversation now. And when you come back, our Returnee network is a great place to share your experiences.
Conversation Corps volunteers must be native English speakers. They need to have earned a high school (secondary school) diploma or certificate, be in good health and abide by the family’s rules and habits. Placements are available year 'round and range in duration from one to three months.
