UPDATED COVID TRAVEL ALERT: 23 MAY 2021. Spain to welcome fully vaccinated Americans starting June 7.
Spain has decided it's not going to wait for the European Union to formally set a date to begin admitting vaccinated travelers from outside the 27-nation zone: It will open its borders beginning June 7.
Travelers will have to show proof they received their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or their single Johnson & Johnson injection at least 14 days prior to entering Spain. Spain will not yet welcome unvaccinated Americans over 18, regardless of a negative COVID test.
GeoVisions Foundation will begin sending Au Pairs to Spain on June 7.
Homestay Tutor In Spain
This is an immersion opportunity to learn Spanish and enjoy the Spanish culture and food for 1, 2, or 3 months. You'll live like a local with a carefully screened host family and you'll become a part of the community.
When your host family learns English, you're leaving a lifetime skill that they (and you) will never forget.
Teach English abroad in Spain for up to 15 hours each week and live like a local for up to 3 months when you help a family in Spain learn English. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before! Your new host family is more interested in learning conversational English than they are grammar. You'll have so much fun living in Spain by simply speaking English the way you normally do at home. Also, you also have a unique opportunity to learn or improve your Spanish!
In a matter of hours, you're walking around your new community like a real Spanish citizen. It won’t take long for the locals to start recognizing you and for you to consider your host community your new, temporary home. It’s real and authentic. Get to know the locals. Wake up each day and feel a connection.

"Feeling good about teaching my host family English
My goals for doing this program were to become a better English teacher and to get to know the city where am I staying. Since being on the program for a month, I definitely feel like I have accomplished my goal of feeling comfortable in my city.
My goal with being a better English teacher has been narrowed down a little bit; in other words, it has gone from the general (wanting to be good) to the specific (help my family improve their English skills in tailored ways given their personal goals and feedback).

"First time abroad
This was such an incredible experience! I had never traveled alone before so GeoVisions was great for me to get me out into the world. Now I want to explore everywhere! I had an amazing family and met so many incredible people. I would definitely do it again.

"I wish I did this sooner!
My experience was so amazing. I had a wonderful family that I still talk to, and have been told that i'll always have a home in Spain. My host family helped me with anything I needed help with so the usual travel stresses or last minute things to be completed were not a problem. I think GeoVisions found the perfect family for me!
I didn't need my medical insurance thankfully, but having that was reassuring. Also, the fact that GeoVisions was considered like a school, I'd get discounts all the time! I wish I did this every summer in between college because it was just an amazing time. For more impact, check my blog post! :)
