Do you want to meet local people and learn about their culture?
Do you want to give back by sharing a skill?
Our concept is simple...Get free room and board with a local host in exchange for English practice. No money is exchanged, just sharing and culture.
The idea of Culture Go Go was created after living in Spain for a few years. Through our work as English Teachers we saw the need to create a new, more exciting way for people to learn English.
We also found that we wanted to connect with our students beyond the classroom. We wanted to get to know their friends, family, customs and culture and see the real Spain.
That’s where the idea sprang into action…We realised there were two things that people could exchange:
1. Room & board and a cultural experience with a local host
2. English Practice with a native English speaker
Our aim was to create a meaningful exchange that benefits both parties.
Culture Go Go (previously My Family Abroad) was set up in 2012 as a volunteer program in Madrid, Spain. We personally placed English speakers with host families in Madrid. And the results? Fantastic!
In 2014 we set up our online sharing community to connect travelers & hosts on a bigger scale. We now have hosts throughout Spain and Latin America.
We continue to grow with more hosts in more locations. And in the future we aim to expand to other languages & countries...watch this space!
