Spanish Language Development Placements






Ninth Wave Global are offering immersive Spanish learning opportunities, living and working as part of a bilingual, interdisciplinary team in southern Mexico.

These placements in the city of Campeche present a unique framework within which rapidly improve and perfect your command of the Spanish language across wide-ranging verbal, written and aural contexts while also gaining experience working in a dynamic team for a not-for-profit organisation.

Whether you're working with local businesses on multi-faceted sustainability initiatives, contributing to project proposals and funding applications, delivering educational children's workshops, drafting and editing copy for promotional material, assisting on turtle conservation projects, helping out at a collaborative urban farming project or facilitating organic fair-trade markets with local artisans, work will be varied, challenging, always engaging and valuable.

We need people who are self-driven, excited, creative thinkers with a genuine commitment to developing their language skills while motivatedly driving forward local projects. If that’s you, get in touch! Placements are flexible and can be adapted from 3 weeks up to 4 months. Tuition and accommodation fees will vary according to length of stay and specific requirements, starting at $600 USD per calendar month. Please note that we are a not-for-profit organisation and will gladly support any external funding applications pursued by individuals to cover the costs of their stay.
