Activity Possibilities for Cultural Immersion & Foreign Language Immersion
The possibilities are endless… Some ideas are below. We are eliminating the obvious monuments and sightseeing. You can do that on your own. Keep scrolling down.
The more you know in advance about the country, region, city or town you are visiting, the more you will get out of your experience.
Some of the many things you might want to do – on your own or with friends. There are many links to events. This is just a partial list. We are working on it.
♦ Link to International Holidays. Find out what will be happening on the dates you will be where you are going.
♦ Link to Religious & Regional Festivals. Plan your experience around world famous Religious Festivals or Really Go Local when you attend Regional Festivals. Good food and local traditions.
♦ Link to Cultural Calendars & Events of many countries and cities world wide. (we will be adding to it)
For those who not want to be just tourists.
