Spain is waiting for you!

Have you ever dreamed of experiencing the day-to-day life of a Spain? Want more from your European holiday than day tours and hotels? With Global Projects you will immerse yourself in the Spanish way of life by living with a Spanish family, sharing experiences and in many cases taking part in family activities. Our host families are not only excited to learn English but also love to share the character of their country, culture and cuisine.

Global Projects familes are located in all locations although many are based in Madrid or the southern region of Spain. As most weekends will normally be free you will also have plenty of time to travel. Spain has an excellent domestic rail service and low cost airfares will allow you to easily explore the rest of Europe -  a weekend in Lisbon or Paris is just an hour or two away!
