Study Spanish Abroad

Spend a week, two weeks, or as long as you need to achieve your language learning goals in a Spanish-speaking country of your choice.

Discover the delightful and exotic Spanish or Latin American culture from the local people’s perspective. Explore the region on your own or enjoy a variety of organized excursions and activities.  Throughout your stay, you’ll be practicing Spanish around the clock with native speakers in natural, everyday situations. And you’ll come back from your immersive study vacation with a greatly improved working knowledge of Spanish and a bubbling enthusiasm to learn even more!

As part of organizing your trip, we will put you in touch with an approved language school at your destination, where you can take intensive Spanish classes to help you make the most of your practice in the field.

Spanish Immersion Cruises

If you want to practice your Spanish in a variety of native environments and really pamper yourself at the same time, a Spanish immersion cruise is just the thing for you.

Visit a number of countries in the Caribbean and Central and South America, and even Spain, depending on forthcoming cruise schedules. Combine intensive Spanish language classes on board the cruise ship with fun games and activities as well as all kinds of shore excursions. You can bring friends and family along even if they are not interested in working on their Spanish. You’ll have a wonderful time!
