Experience a blend of ancient traditions, Spanish influences and modern Mexican life during your exchange program to one of the most captivating cultures in the world.
Once home to ancient civilisations like the Maya and the Aztec, Mexicans are proud of their native heritage and have preserved many traditions, particularly in the arts. In comparison to many other countries, Mexican art is defined by the continued existence and evolution of its ancient traditions as opposed to its decline over time.
Mexicans are also known for their kindness, hospitality, artistic skills, festive spirit and great food. Traditional Mexican specialities include peanuts, beans, coconuts, vanilla and tomatoes. With the arrival of the Spanish, modern Mexican cuisines evolved, integrating European flavours into their own traditional meals.
Experience the old, the new and a blend of both during your WEP exchange to Mexico and learn a language spoken by 330 million people around the world.
