Do I have to speak the local language to go on the program?

BEYOND BORDERS programs do not require knowledge of the local language as English is widely spoken in India. We also believe that navigating through diverse cultures and languages is an integral part of experiential learning. While BEYOND BORDERS provides participants with a list of essential phrases in the local languages, most placement sites have coordinators who converse in English and students on programs as short as 3 weeks often understand the local language (some even begin conversing in them)!
