Guadeloupe is an overseas region of France. During your language study trip to Guadeloupe, you will therefore notice many similarities to the mother country. And yet the islanders have experienced many cultural influences: Europeans, Africans, Americans and Indians have all left their mark, creating a melting pot of different nationalities that is reflected in the languages and many aspects of life. Countless street parties, such as Carnival, reveal the locals' cheerful nature and sense of tradition. Creole food is a real highlight. This, too, is a mix: European dishes, African ingredients and Oriental spices. Fresh fish and seafood are particularly popular on the island.
