SIL’s Spanish Language/Cultural Immersion Experience provides a highly customized, deeply integrated approach to learning or improving Spanish. This one-week co-ed trip consists of three to four days of mini- group Spanish lessons at a well-respected Spanish language school, paired with a local home stay experience in a Palma de Majorca, in one of the most beautiful spots of the Islas Baleares suburb. Whether participants are practicing Spanish while learning about the “Mallorquin” culture surrounding coffee or conversing with their host family, this experience gives students an opportunity to improve their skills while also learning about local customs and culture.
The second half of this trip gives participants a completely different, but equally authentic view of Spanish Mediterrean life and culture by traveling south to in the beachy Peninsula. Whether participants are hearing the personal stories of local residents or learning about the surrounding rainforest ecology during guided tours of the majestic natural beauty the location affords (especially Mondrago National Park), the second half of the experience gives participants the opportunity to improve their skills in a unique “out-of-the-classroom” immersion experience.
