Why is our school called Route 66 Idiomas?
The Route 66 interstate highway symbolizes the optimism that invaded the USA after the Great Depression and the First World War.
Construction of the Route 66 interstate highway began at the end of the 1920s. It made it possible to travel by car from the east to the west of the USA for the first time. Eventually the highway connected 8 states and provided jobs and incomes for thousands of people. It also offered thousands of others the opportunity to seek a new life.
Since 1984 Route 66 has not been an official interstate highway. However, North Americans and foreign tourists have rediscovered it.
These new travellers want to relive the experience of heading towards the west and a promising future. By rediscovering the path they seek adventure, in an immersive process that allows them to once again enjoy all that the famous highway has traditionally symbolized.
The name of our language school is based on this story. Learning a language will bring you new options and opportunities (in work, for study, or for more enriching travel) and also bring you close to people, just like this famous project of the 1930s. And, of course, Route 66 is also an easy name to remember 😉
