Spanish Language Immersion

Nine (or more) weeks of study of the Spanish language: four weeks of classroom study and nine weeks of cultural immersion in Central and South America. Students learn with native teachers for two two-week intensives in group and one-on-one settings. Afternoons are spent doing volunteer community service, and students live with homestay families in Central and South America for a cumulative total of eighty hours of one-on-one language instruction. The remaining six weeks are spent living, working, and traveling with native Spanish speakers. The design of the course cultivates fluency in conversational Spanish, engaging students in the practice of speaking Spanish for nine weeks abroad.
