At GeoVisions, we are always surprised by the number of people who apply to join the Conversation Corps in Spain, France, Germany, Austria or Italy, and assuming they can travel to Europe and stay as long as they like.  Actually, you can stay only 90-days on a tourist visa in the Schengen Zone, and then you must leave for 90-days before you return.

Conversation Corps in Europe utilizes the tourist visa, so you just arrive at your destination.
