  • Students who have achieved average or better school results in the last two years.

Local Coordinators

In Get Ready, our Local Coordinators will be available to support and guide the students throughout the program. They will assist them when they have questions and support them during their study abroad experience. Both our staff at the Get Ready office and the Local Coordinators are committed to providing the highest level of service to the students, ensuring a successful and happy year.


Student files will be distributed to Get Ready Local Coordinators in Spain who will place the students with appropriately screened and oriented Spanish host families. In the case of boarding school students, they will likewise offer their support and help to them, meeting them periodically to check on their progress and well-being.

Get Ready provides guidelines and advice for both our host families and our students to help ensure that students are fully integrated into the family unit, making the experience enjoyable for everyone involved.

Local Coordinators

The Local Coordinators will be in at least monthly contact –if it’s not more often- with students by phone or in person and will provide counselling to students for the whole duration of the program. Each student is assigned a Local Coordinator who is responsible for talking to the student and his/her host family/boarding school staff and being available throughout his/her program to help resolve any problems the students may have.

Local Orientations

Within the first weeks of the student’s arrival, Get Ready’s Local Coordinators will arrange a student orientation with the exchange students living in the area. The purpose of this meeting is to review the rules of the program, the adaptation process, Spanish customs and general high school information. At the orientation, students can share experiences with other high school students and have personal talks with their Local Coordinators.
