Rachel is working for one of Chile's most successful startup companies. Vacuch is a local business that fights to help prevent cow mastitis and has developed a product that is about to explode in both in the local and international marketplace. Rachel is getting to assist them with this transition and has her hands full as Vuchuch's official intern.

This is César. He is our Spanish teacher. He helps students understand Chilean culture and Chilean slang, and he is doing an wonderful job of making class an interactive space. Today we learned how mapudungun (indigenous language) has influenced modern Chilean slang! Learn Spanish through the KIVU Gap Year and take a break from the traditional classroom.
