Purdue University students combine course work with the opportunity to teach students in a bilingual elementary school in Zamorano, two bilingual secondary schools in Tegucigalpa, observe and teach activities in local rural schools, and visit historic sites in Honduras. In the future this program could expand to involve Honduran educators at the university level as well as students and teachers.
