It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Extremely respectful and receptive, everyone I had the opportunity to meet at Gleanings helped me not only with the language, but also to become a better person. Ideal place to start an exchange. They are very understanding of our difficulty with the language and their initial adaptation to the country's culture. Because it is a missionary institution, it is the ideal place for those who want to meet spiritually and socially. I just have to thank each one of the team. I hope to have the opportunity to return one day.

At Gleanings you will stay in a farm working in different tasks - and in all of them you learn something new and interact with people from all over the world and the US.
It is a great experience for someone who wants to improve their english and to learn more about how is the life in other countries!
