Attend a school year or semester in the United States of America.
The cultural exchange experience abroad is an important step in the formation and growth of every student and MLC Edu knows that everyone has different desires and needs. That is why MLC Edu puts the student's best interest at the center, offering personalized counseling and programs tailored to each type of need. MLC Edu and its staff will guide students and their families in choosing the most appropriate program.
The common word for all these programs is "Exchange", because it is basically a cultural exchange program where the student cannot choose the specific destination location within the United States, but can possibly express a preference in terms of macro area, state or activities, subjects, sports present in the school. The indication of a preference has an additional cost.
Host families are always volunteer families and it is they who choose which student to welcome into their home, not the other way around!
The approach required of students and their families should be one of open-mindedness and flexibility. Each location will be able to offer a unique living experience.

MLC Edu Limited
MLC Education was born in 2016 from the sensitivity of a teacher combined with the courage of an entrepreneur, who perceived the demand for a different proposal for education abroad programs. And they created it.
MLC Education has created a range of training proposals that follow the student personally at different stages of the learning journey, aiming not only at improving language skills, but also at personal growth and the achievement of autonomy through experience in the world.
An experienced staff creates and proposes programs by screening the proposals of the international market, and proposes them to families by listening to the needs of each one and proposing the most suitable solution.
MLC Education is professionalism, experience and listening.
