All of our programs feature a host family experience because we believe that authentic, local experiences are the best way to get to know another culture.
Whether you're seeking a bridge program after high school, taking a break from college, seeking a study abroad program, or an adult in search of new language skills and friendships, we have programs for you!

"Going on an exchange for one month has been the most humbling, yet empowering thing I have ever done in my life. I learned how to be grounded when literally everything around me was different and plans constantly changed. I learned how to accept change as a positive thing, to live in the moment, and to appreciate things we often take for granted, and much more. I believe those are some of the most important skills in not just working with people, but going through life in general."
- Maris, Spanish Immersion Program
Why Travel with ANDEO?
We love homestays! We have specialized in homestay travel since 1981. We truly believe that the best way to experience another culture and improve your language skills is by sharing everyday life with a welcoming host family.
We have first-hand experience traveling and living with host families. Our staff members have all lived with host families abroad and understand the joys and challenges of homestays. We are ready to support you in your cross-cultural adventure.
ANDEO staff members have personally visited each of our partner schools and organizations, and we work directly with these partners to coordinate each program.
You will never be a number. Our programs are small and our service is personal. Even though we have worked with thousands of students, we are proud of the personalized service and strong support we give our participants (and their parents, too!).
The other side of cultural exchange
Hosting an international student for a few weeks is a great way to get a good understanding of what being an exchange student is all about. If you live in Oregon or Washington, we'd love to connect you with a student who shares your interests.
