J1 a la carte superior


The student will select two States of preference from our offer at the time of booking and the American agencies will look for a family and school in the selected destinations!

A la Carte Options:  The student can also choose ONE OF THE FOLLOWING FOUR options:

  • A family with children

  • A family with a certain religious affinity

  • Specific diets for children with specific needs

  • Possibility of doing a specific sport inside or outside the school environment.

Students who are 14 years for 10th grade: We have a limited number of places for students who are not 15 years old on August 15, and wish to study grade 10 in the USA.  Due to the limited number of places available to them and the difficulties we face in many states, choice of state or à la carte options are not available to them, but we allow them to enroll with us in our Superior program!

REIMBURSEMENT COMMITMENT: If finally, the American agency fails to place the student in one of the two selected States, they will be able to place him in any state of the country from June 30th , since our priority is to find a good host family and that the student can do his/her school year. If that happens, a refund of 2,150 euros will be made.

  • Request your place

    You must request your personal interview by sending an e-mail to: info@speakandtravel.es, or calling (+34) 985 229 632 or (+34) 609 013 418. You will then receive more detailed information about the program.

  • Official test of English

    Once you have made the decision to enroll in one of our programs, the student must take the ELTIS, and official language test that we will provide, and will be done on-line.

  • Contract formalization

    After we have successfully passed these two previous steps, and once the student has been accepted into the program, we will sign the contract and pay to reserve the course. After that, we will start filling in all the necessary documents and applications that are required by the American agency.

  • Last details

    We will then only have to wait until the American Agency sends all the information about our host family and the State that will be our home during the entire course. While we wait, we will make all the arrangements to obtain our visa permit in the American Embassy in Madrid.
