CIEE Language and Culture Program in Dakar, Senegal
Live and study Senegalese culture and develop skills in French and Wolof, a regional Sub-Saharan African language, in one of the most developed, democratic – and friendly – nations in the region.

- Live with a Senegalese family that will provide strong cultural immersion
- Participate in African art, dance, and music and engage in community service and/or an internship
