Fifty hours of immersion assists beginning, intermediate and advanced students who want to propel their Spanish to the next level of competency. This class is useful for travelers, professionals who work with Spanish speakers, and all who love the language. Students work in classrooms at their ability level and interact with students of different ability levels using engaging, whole-language strategies and activities. Low-stress methodologies require students to rotate frequently from working individually, in pairs and groups, creating authentic interactions with peers and teachers. Students work in a variety of activities to continually engage their brain in acquiring vocabulary and, consequently, expanding their speaking ability. This interactive method of developing a language makes the five hours a day fly by. Holding the intention to continuously speak in and use the L2 (second language) throughout these ten days creates a dimension that can rarely be developed when learning takes place in a standard foreign language classroom for only one or two hours, once or twice a week.
