AmeriSpan Advantage


Combined Travel and Linguistic Knowledge

AmeriSpan's staff has three passions: language, culture, and travel. Individually and as a group, we have accumulated experiences and knowledge related to these passions. We have traveled to more than 65 countries - every continent except Antarctica - and speak 10 languages. We are happy to share this enormous amount of relevant knowledge with you.

Study Abroad Veterans

Every AmeriSpan staff member has studied and/or lived abroad for extended periods of time. We understand your questions and concerns because we have personally dealt with the same issues. We have gone to great lengths to make it easier for you than it was for us. After enrolling in a program, you will receive a copy of the "Need-To-Know" fact sheets on the country or countriesthat you will be visiting. These fact sheets include information about entry requirements, climate, health and many other "Need-To-Know" things. If you still have questions, we’ll be happy to answer them.

Unbiased Language Travel Specialists

We are neither a language school nor a travel agent – we’re a hybrid of the two, a language travel organization. AmeriSpan has evaluated hundreds of schools, host families and destinations to determine which programs to offer. Our independence allows us to give you unbiased evaluations of the programs. We do not just list what is included – rather, we clearly state our opinions. Each program description contains a program review that describes “what we like” and “what we don’t like” about the program.

No Hassles, No Headaches

Aside from assisting you with which program to choose, we work hard to make the whole process as simple as possible. AmeriSpan pre-arranges your school, lodging, airport pick-up and other services. With AmeriSpan, you will not have to worry about international wire transfers, international phone calls or dozens of other possible complications with arrangements and money.

We accept personal checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. AmeriSpan accepts applications by mail, by fax or online.

Hand-Picked Schools

AmeriSpan's staff has visited hundreds of language schools throughout the world and we have hand-picked schools which we think are the best available in each location. The programs AmeriSpan offers are the ones we would choose to attend ourselves. In some locations we offer two classes of schools: 1st Choice and Budget-Friendly. When evaluating schools, these are the things we are continuously reviewing:

  • Teaching Methodology
  • Teacher training & experience
  • Types of courses offered
  • Maximum class size
  • Accreditations and Memberships
  • School Atmosphere
  • Quality of lodging options
  • Range of lodging options
  • Homestay Interaction
  • Past Student Feedback
  • Extra Activities & Excursions
  • School Facilities
  • School location
  • School Administration
  • Personal Attention
  • Unique aspects of the program
  • Extra Services Offered
  • Programs Overall Value

denotes areas that we may de-emphasize in order to find a program that is budget-friendly
 

Latin America & Spain Experts

Prior to 1999, AmeriSpan specialized in offering Spanish programs in Latin America and Spain. Our staff has repeatedly traveled to every Spanish-speaking nation in the world (20 different countries) to personally evaluate hundreds of language schools and host families. As a result of this emphasis, our staff has an enormous amount of first-hand knowledge about the Spanish-speaking world.
