4 week "Community Level" full immersion
with youth in
Spanish colonial Granada, Nicaragua:
June & July Sessions feature an
authentic full immersion high school experience in Central
America's oldest colonial city Granada, Nicaragua, pop. 90,000.
Students live in Granada's historic (adobe) colonial district
where the heart of the community comes alive through music,
dance, sports, open markets, schools and fiestas. Because of
Granada's small town feel students are quickly adopted into the
community. From Latin Dance to soccer games at the lake,
students enjoy being part of the local high school culture. All
students live within walking distant of each other and program
staff. Building language confidence is the focus of this
program, and there is no better way to learn those skills than
to interact on a daily basis with local high school students at
Granada's colonial high school. Each morning students
participate in small intimate language sessions that
provide exciting “hands on learning” in cultural enriching
activities. After lunch and "siesta" student's share fun
activities that foster friendships and contribute to the needs
of local youth during our afternoon community service "Spanish
through Leadership". Evening activities include host family
fiestas, live music shows and Latin dance. Located in the shadow
of Mombacho cloud forest and bordered by 300 tropical islands,
colonial Granada provides a spectacular location for exploring
language and culture. This unique high school integrated program
has developed into of Latin America's most recognized immersion
programs for youth. Included in the four week program are many
cultural events and a variety of unforgettable tropical
excursions. staff to student ratio 1:3, one student per
home-stay, homestays have children!
