Spanish Immersion Program By popular demand, STRIVE is offering students the unique experience of studying Spanish language in an intense week-long Spanish Immersion Program (SIP) before their service and travel experience with STRIVE-Peru. Students in the SIP will be met by their group leader in the Lima, Peru airport and the group will fly together to Cusco, Peru. They then travel by private transport to meet their home-stay families, with whom they will stay for the remainder of the week, in the tiny mountain town of Ollantaytambo. The views and experiences are only the beginning of your adventure as, on the weekends, you’ll enjoy day-trips through the Sacred Valley. Be it attending a professional Peruvian soccer match, hiking up and exploring the Pisaq ruins – a beautiful prelude to your visit to the incomparable Machu Picchu, or simply spending your free time exploring the market and immersing yourself in the culture and language, the Sacred Valley always has something more to offer.
