Bringing abroad home

This cultural and linguistic exchange
bridges the gap
between young people
and enriches their minds
something their parents and grandparents
were able
to experience.

The program serves as a bridge
across the ocean,
especially to those
who cannot afford to travel
by plane
and don’t have the opportunity
to socialize
with a person
from another continent.
Now, thanks to Real Talk, they do.

Paving the way today

Many colleges have foreign language
so understanding German and English

can increase the chances
of being accepted.

Besides, mastery of one or more foreign
gives students a competitive
edge in career choices
and prepares them
for success in the global economy.

Liebling sibling

English is a Germanic language.
One study says that about 130,000
words in
modern English derive from
Germanic languages.
In fact,
about 60% of most commonly used

words in English have German roots.

Thanks to the unique relationship
these two languages, speaking
one of them
makes it much easier
to learn the other one.

Beyond a textbook

Sure, students can learn a new language
from a textbook
or an app,
but participating in an international

exchange program lets young people
learn natural and
language firsthand.

Real Talk gives students a real
opportunity to learn
and actively
practice both formal and informal
which helps them converse
proficiently in real-world
in real time with real native speakers.

Practice makes perfect

Numerous studies show that students
to fully grasp foreign languages
when they
don’t have anyone
to practice them with.

And what can be better than
the opportunity
to improve fluency
by engaging in full-on,
conversations with native speakers

of the foreign language students
aim to learn?

Prepped to lead

As our world has become more interconnected and
interdependent, so has the need to speak a foreign
language and to develop core intercultural competence.
However, few young people today have the opportunity
to practice studied languages with native speakers and
to have a meaningful cultural and academic exchange.
Real Talk has been developed to help students become
global citizens who are both culturally and linguistically
prepared to function in this Brave New World.

Diverse & Inclusive

Historically, many students have been excluded
from reaping the benefits of educational exchange
programs due to socio-economic barriers. Many
current programs divide classes of students
because they are private, exclusive, and elusive.
But not us! We want everyone to join in
the conversation so they can benefit from rich
experiences and engaging cultural exchanges,
while building their capacity to deal effectively
with diversity and difference.
