Hands-on learning activities and programs have been extremely popular in recent years for its efficient learning effects. Here we introduce some of the experience-based programs and why Guam is a popular destination for school/educational trips.

Guam for an educational trip? Here is why.

Chamorro culture was formed by ancient Chamorro people who moved to the island of Guam thousands of years ago. The island’s ancestors were excellent fishermen and artisans, and had created unique and original houses and canoes to create a proper and comfortable living environment. They were also experts in making high quality textile and pottery. Guam also used to be a strong matriarchal society. Most of Chamorro culture includes language, music, dance and traditions that were preserved and succeeded from generation to generation.

Great access, extremely minor time difference

Most countries in Asia and the Pacific have direct flights to/from Guam and they usually only take a couple of hours. This means the flight fare is relatively affordable, and you can use your limited time effectively with an extremely minor time difference.

Closest English-speaking country in Asia and the Pacific

As a US territory, Guam is an English-speaking country which is the closest one to most countries in Asia and the Pacific. Students can immerse themselves in an English environment and experience an international culture to stimulate their motivation for learning.
