Learn the language of your choice with Listen & Learn and pack for your trip.
Whether you are a language student or your expertise is somehow linked with Latin American culture, we want to help you experience places and people that will benefit your studies and see you returning in the new academic year with unique and exciting knowledge to share with others.
To truly make the most out of your trip, you will need to be able to interact with the locals, speaking their language. So, before you fly overseas to begin your dream journey, we will allocate you one of our expert Spanish or Portuguese tutors for 10 FREE online language lessons. Armed with the basics, you will feel confident improving your new language as you travel, immersing yourself in the exciting places you visit.
CREATE YOUR OWN TRAVEL PLAN
The $3,000 USD travel fund is for you to spend however you wish, so long as it is used to travel a Latin American country (or countries). You choose where to visit, how long you stay and what sites and activities you enjoy along the way!
AN ENRICHING JOURNEY
The purpose of the Listen & Learn Travel Scholarship is to provide one fortunate winner with an enriching and educational experience. While this will primarily be achieved via learning a new language and enjoying positive travel experiences which enrich the self and one’s knowledge, we welcome candidates who want to contribute positive social or environmental contributions, as well.
Few methods of travel are more soulful and constructive than “voluntourism”, where a traveller spends some of their time improving the lives of others by volunteering with a local or national project. But beyond the immediate benefits you will bring to the community you help, you will feel good about your own actions, enjoy a completely unique travel experience and develop your new language to a higher level.
How you spend your travel time is up to you, but be sure to let us know if “voluntourism” is something you would be interested in during your trip, and we will help find suitable programmes in your chosen travel destinations.
