Dakar: June Short-Term
Cross-cultural connections and valuable exchanges for an engaging three weeks
Senegalese are known for teranga, or hospitality. Their warmth and generosity can be easily seen and felt over the course of a homestay living experience. One of the best ways to deepen one’s immersion into the local community, it is also an exceptional way to gain a greater cross-cultural understanding.
During the pre-departure period, students complete a housing questionnaire which our staff use to make the best homestay match. All hosts speak English and one or two students are paired per host family.
Students are provided with a private bedroom with linens, access to common areas including the kitchen, daily breakfast and dinner, and weekly laundry.
