Spanish Language Immersion Institute

—Deadline to register is Friday, June 15—

Take this opportunity to polish old skills, acquire new ones, and enhance your communication skills with students, parents, and others!

This institute helps fill the gap by providing a less expensive alternative for learning or advancing Spanish language skills. The course is just five days, but it immerses participants in Spanish language and culture. A small classroom setting (15-to-1 ratio) provides the environment to work at diverse ability levels, from beginning to advanced, and gain the language skills needed to participate in afternoon field experiences.

The Spanish Language Immersion Institute will help prepare participants for the language portion of the LOTE examination or enable them to interact in Spanish for work or travel. This is a shortened version of the 12-day institutes held in previous years.

Credit: Two units of upper-division extended education credit available for $55 per unit through Dominican University of California; application available at first class meeting.

Please note: Participants must register and pay the required fee two weeks prior to the first day of class. This program has an enrollment minimum of 30 participants.

This class is full and online registrations are no longer being accepted.
