    Travel Journal from United States New York, United States | Tue Aug 28, 2012

    My story is a bit different. I had already booked my flight to Munich about a month before I even knew what GeoVisions was. I have vacation time in October 2012 and I wanted to also celebrate my upcoming 30th birthday abroad. Well I then discovered in May 2012 GeoVisions and was intrigued to say the least at extending my time in Munich. I contacted the website email provided and …

    Travel Journal from Spain Madrid, Spain | Sat Jul 21, 2012

    Leaving home to come to Spain became a little more complicated when my Mother died unexpectedly two weeks before my departure. I was determined to carry on as I know that is what Mum would have wanted, I arrived at the airport in Madrid earlier than scheduled and wondered how I would recognize my new family, as although we had emailed and texted, photos had not been exchanged. I was going …

    What is the difference between Conversation Corps and Conversation Partner?

    Topic The difference between Conversation Corps and Conversation Partner

    Started by RandyLeGrant, 0 Reply

    GeoVisions has two types of Conversation Programs. They are Conversation Corps and Conversation Partner. What is the difference?

    Basically, Conversation Corps is where you go abroad and live with a family and tutor that family in conversational English. You live with the family and become, for a short time, a member of that family. You eat your meals with the family and do some social activities with them.

    A Conversation Partner is a tutor OUTSIDE and AWAY from the home. You do NOT tutor a family in conversational English, although you may live with a family. You are a conversation partner to a group of people. GeoVisions has Conversation Partners tutoring the Tourist Police in Costa Rica, tour guides in Ecuador and national park staff in Brazil. So you might live with a family as a boarder, but it really isn't going to be a real family feel. You may in fact live in a dorm, a hostel or small hotel. It all depends on the country, the assignment and time of year.

    So choosing Conversation Corps or Conversation Partner involves whether or not you want to become a part of a family and tutor them in conversational English or if you want to be more independent and teach outside your place of accommodation in "on the job" kind of "real life" situations. The choice is totally yours.
