Intensive Spanish Program


This one-month total immersion Spanish language program satisfies the requirement for one year of foreign language at the Intermediate level. It is limited to 18 undergraduate students from the Atlanta University Consortium who qualify for Spanish 201 but have not yet completed either Spanish 201 or Spanish 202.

The Program is located at Morehouse College and all activities, both inside and outside the classroom, for the duration of the Program, will be conducted in Spanish.

All participants are required to have lunch and dinner with the Program from Monday through Friday. Spanish-speaking teaching assistants will maintain the total-immersion environment. Lunch and dinner will be on the Morehouse College campus with at least one meal per week at a local Hispanic restaurant.

In addition to the Spanish 201 and Spanish 202 curriculum, Spanish language films, Hispanic dance classes, Hispanic crafts, Hispanic cooking, and community service, will be included.
Program participants are required to participate in all activities.

Atlanta University Consortium students whose application, letters of recommendation, past grades, brief placement exam (at discretion of Director) and interview indicate a high level of past achievement in first year Spanish and the dedication and commitment necessary for success in a total immersion program. Participants must sign a pledge that they will speak only in Spanish during the one-month period of the Program, both in and out of class.

"For a country to fortify and develop its culture, it must open its doors and windows wide to intellectual, scientific, and artistic currents. It must stimulate the free circulation of ideas - from wherever they may come - so that local tradition and experience are constantly put to the test; and so that they may be corrected, completed, and enriched by the traditions and experiences of those who share the miseries and wonders of the human adventure in other places, through different languages and circumstances."
