Activities depend on availability
The Spanish Immersion program is unlike any other. The students enjoy outdoor adventure activities such as hiking, horseback riding, canopy tours, swimming, surfing, and eco-tourism.
Participants will have the chance to hone their new language skills when exploring shops, open-air markets, and engaging with the locals day to day.
Enjoy a summer abroad living, learning, and exploring internationally while in the country of residence (determined by access and accommodations).
(Enrollment in the Academy at SOAR is not required to participate in the Spanish Immersion course.)
Students will attend a Spanish language class (approximately four hours per day), which allows for a full and dynamic immersion experience. In addition to language skills, students will gain practical life experience, increase their independent living skills, and discover the culture of the country of residence. Students’ interactions with locals through daily tasks and responsibilities and extending to their travels, provide consistent opportunities to practice, learn and refine their conversational Spanish in a variety of situations.
Students will delve into a way of living much different from their own, perhaps nowhere more noticeable than the open-air markets in these small communities. Here they will come to buy food to prepare for meals, local crafts, and other commodities while also practicing their Spanish skills.
The group will discover the incredible diversity of the country of residence as they explore both the cultural and adventure sites available to them.
