Chile is a long country that runs more than half the length of South America. The climate in Chile is diverse and varies from hot, arid and sunny in the North to cold and snowy in the South. Chile has the driest desert in the world at its north, glaciers in its south and volcanoes, islands, lush forests and lakes in its centre. Among Latin American countries, Chile is considered a safe country with the best health care and modern infrastructure.
There is no language requirement to apply for an exchange to Chile. Spanish is the official language of Chile and it is a good idea to learn some Spanish before you arrive.
The school year is from March to December, from Monday to Friday. In almost every school in Chile students wear uniforms, both in public and private schools (school uniforms are not included in the program fee). Over the year, students study a variety of subjects with their classmates. School is the place where you meet new friends, enjoy different activities and have fun – while studying!
Family plays a central role in Chilean life. Families are very close and love to spend time together. Sundays are often family days and families enjoy doing activities all together and exploring the diverse and beautiful countryside.
