Many people who
vacation in Europe
never have a single
real conversation with
locals. If you visit
Europe as part of
organized tour
chances are the only
local people you'll get
a chance to talk to will
be your tour guide,
bus driver, and hotel
clerks. Who won't have
time to interact
personally with you.
A two-week (12 night) TLN program creates the opportunity to meet members
of the local community, not just fellow tourists. Who? Waiters in your favorite
restaurant, the barista at the corner bar. People from town you met during an
evening program, or with whom you participate in a recreational activity.

exchanges possible.
