Spanish Immersion Program

This 15-week long, full-time program is designed for university students who want to spend a semester learning or improving their Spanish while gaining an in-depth understanding of Argentina´s history and culture.

All participants take three compulsory courses: two consecutive levels of Spanish (84 lecture hours each) and a History and Culture course (48 lecture hours) taught in English.

The program is broken into two 7 week modules. In each module, students take one level of Spanish and the History course and they attend 1 or 2 cultural visits. There is a week-long break on week 8 of the program.

Three levels of Spanish are offered during each module: Basic 1, Basic 2 and Intermediate 1 in the first 7 weeks, and Basic 2, Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 during the remainder of the program.

The Spanish Immersion Program runs from the end of January to mid- March, and from the end of August to mid-December.

Program fees include housing in homestays, some meals, excursions, cultural visits, all course materials and local support.
