Prices typically range from $1,950 to $3,500 for pure immersion programs and from $2,150 to $4,350 for programs featuring classes, group activities, and excursions.
For 2017, ANDEO is again offering custom-designed programs abroad for teacher-led groups. We would love to tailor a program for you that complements your students' classroom learning experience. We're sure students will return with a deeper understanding of other cultures and fresh enthusiasm for their language studies - and maybe you will, too!
All of ANDEO's programs abroad feature homestays with welcoming host families. In some locations, you can choose to include interactive small-group language classes, cultural activities, and excursions, or encourage your students to embrace the challenge of becoming fully immersed in the daily rhythms of their host families' lives.
"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, Spanish teacher at Sunnyside Environmental School and 2013 chaperone to Nicaragua

What are my responsibilities as chaperone?
You will be involved in screening the students and preparing them for the experience. As the chaperone, you will guide your students traveling to the destination and back home and be available to support them throughout their stay.
How many students do I need for a group?
We usually aim for a minimum group size of ten students, but we can customize a program for a smaller group.
What age ranges does ANDEO work with?
We have experience organizing programs for middle school students, high school students, college age students, and adults.
Does it cost to travel as a chaperone?
No, your airfare and program expenses will be distributed among your students. If you prefer to cover all or part of your own cost, the program fee for the students will be lower.
Can I speak with teachers who have taken their students abroad with ANDEO?
Definitely! Please contact our office and we can provide you with the email addresses of previous chaperones.
