Program Details

Languages are unique descriptions of different worldvisions. To learn a new language is to learn a new way to relate with the world. We want to create bridges between cultures in order to foster sustainable development opportunities for the people that live in the small rural communities around the Sontecomapan Lagoon. The program is held at Los Amigos Ecotourism and Natural Reserve (www.losamigos.com.mx) where participants are provided with a unique context to explore new ways of sharing their mother tongue as a way to sharing the love for the world and its cultures.
