Support from ANDEO for your students' cultural exchange adventures in the classroom and beyond.
For over thirty-five years, ANDEO has supported world language teachers and their students by offering programs that provide authentic cultural experiences and language immersion opportunities. Whether you choose to take a group of your students abroad on a homestay program, recommend an ANDEO program to an individual student, welcome international students into your school community, or invite our cultural presenters to your classroom, you can be confident that the experience will be educational, inspiring, and personal.
Every year, we sponsor speakers with experience in French- and Spanish-speaking countries (and beyond!) to inspire language students in Oregon and Washington with fun, engaging stories of life abroad. Our presenters are either native speakers or have experience living and traveling abroad. They are excited to share their stories and insights with your students!
Invite a few teens from France, Spain, or Mexico to join your school community for 3- 4 weeks in February or April. ANDEO finds and screens the host families and works with your school's administration to approve the visit. Find out more...
“They did a great job of dispelling the various French stereotypes that I struggle against each year. In addition they were all warm, outgoing, and generous in sharing with our students.”
--Kari Kaldhal, Sandy HS
We'll create a customized itinerary for you and your students based on your budget and interests. We also offer fundraising support to help students work together to bring the cost down.
What teachers are saying
"Jean and Sandrine were a delight. They were gracious, made friends easily, helpful in class, generous with their time. Our school was a richer place for having them with us. Your excellent reputation for finding wonderful foreign students for our families to host has been confirmed. It was a pleasure.”
--Jon Broderick, Seaside HS
"I loved watching the students from both cultures interact and get to know each other because they were able to learn how to appreciate their differences and understand how much they have in common."
-Jan Zuckerman, Sunnyside MS
