Our program uses a mixture of different learning methods of Spanish. We seek to expose the student to oral language production. The course consists of both grammar and conversation, focusing more on oral production, hence the importance of cultural immersion culture through volunteer projects and living with host families.

Learning customs, traditions, beliefs, languages and, above all, the social problems of a country, educate and prepare us to become agents of change. We believe that cultural exchange with other countries, is an effective means to do so.
