Los Angeles to Mexico City Live!

from Banyan Global Learning

Program image

Students assist Tiffany as she decides whether to take a new job in Los Angeles. Tiffany shows them what transportation, lodging, and food shopping looks like in Mexico City as she walks with them on a tour of her neighborhood. Meanwhile, her friend and colleague Travis shows what Tiffany can expect to be able to afford for the same things in Los Angeles. Students are actively engaged in the process, doing conversions and providing insight to Tiffany to help her determine her budget and ability to take her new offer, with double the salary of her old one!
