The National Registration Center for Study Abroad offers a Spanish language study and construction volunteering program in Peru. Volunteers spend 2 weeks (or longer) in group Spanish classes to learn the four basic language skills of oral and written comprehension, grammar, and listening. English will not be used during the classes that run for about 55 minutes per day and 20 hours per week. Students may enroll in as many weeks as desired. When they have a firmer grasp of Spanish, participants will join Un Techo Para mi Pais, an organization run by university students and operated by volunteers who build and reconstruct low-income housing.
