Host Family: Emma and Alejandro

Meet one of our wonderful host families, Emma and Alejandro!

Emma and Alejandro live in the Historic Center in a lovely 3 story home full of beautiful antiques and photos of generations of their family. Alejandro, now retired from working in real estate, occupies his time cooking and playing classical guitar – 2 passions he loves to share with our students. Emma stays busy caring for Julia, their young daughter. Emma’s love of Spanish culture is infectious as she brings to life the richness of their traditions in her mealtime conversations.

I loved having the opportunity to stay with my Spanish family, Emma, Alejandro and Julia; It allowed me to expand my cultural horizons and form lasting friendships with the whole family.
