A global superpower and hotbed for innovation

Top destination facts


Your students will be immersed in one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. The USA is a 'melting pot' of culture. In addition to Native Americans who were already living on the continent, the population of the United States was built on immigration from other countries. American culture has a number of expressions and has been influenced by African, Native American, Asian, Polynesian and Latin American people. As a result, you will find many social subcultures in different parts of the United States.


At the federal level, the United States has no official language, however English is considered de facto national language. Unsurprisingly, given its vast diversity of cultures, over 300 languages are spoken. Sadly, most languages native to the U.S territory have now become extinct. Surviving native language is threatened by mainstream culture.


Students will love working their way through the unique blend of cuisine in the USA. Due to its vast size, the cuisine depends largely on geographic location. For example, in the state of Louisiana, their cooking is known for its use of cajun spice. American food however commonly uses ingredients such as turkey, corn and maple syrup.
