Each year, 8th grade world language students at Deal have the option to participate in a Deal-sponsored trip abroad. This trip is organized by EF Tours, an education-oriented service that manages student trips across the world. The cost of the trips is funded by the family of the student. Through the generous support of the Deal community, scholarships are available for students who demonstrate need, have exemplary academic records, have been involved in the World Language program since arriving at Deal, and craft an essay in support of their participation. Deal provides faculty and administrators as administrators.
In 2016, students will travel to Costa Rica, France, and China. These trips allow students to apply three years of language instruction and broaden their understanding of their place in the world. In past years, students have also traveled to Spain, Mexico, and Peru. Destination decisions are made each spring. Students interested in traveling as part of their language study are encouraged to speak with their world language teacher to get more information.
