I'm reposting this because it's a program I attended, and I wholly believe in. And, there are lots of new food opportunities, something this kitchen wench really appreciates.
2010 INTENSIVE SPANISH CONVERSATION IN MEXICO
THE LEARN, LIVE AND LOVE SPANISH STUDY PROGRAM IN CUERNAVACA, MEXICO is celebrating its 23nd. consecutive year. The program which will take place June 18– July 3, 2010 is open to all students and members of the community. Students study at the well known UNIVERSIDAD INTERNACIONAL CENTER OF MULTICULTURAL STUDIES where they are totally immersed in the study of Spanish language and culture. Students are not only taught by Mexican university professors, but they also live with Mexican families.
Living with a Mexican family is the ideal way to learn Spanish in the shortest time possible. The purpose of the program is to offer students the opportunity to achieve fluency in Spanish conversation and an understanding of Hispanic culture. Classes are held daily from 8:00 a.m. – 4 p.m., and students study intensive Spanish conversation 3 hours a day in small classes with 5 students and one professor. The rest of their program includes classes on Latin America and workshops on different subjects like music, art, dance, literature and history.
COST: REGISTRATION, ROOM, BOARD & TUITION for PLAN A is $860.00 (Private room and bath) or $785.00 for PLAN B (shared room and bath). Not included in the cost: transportation, books and spending money. Students fly to Mexico City and then take a bus to Cuernavaca, The City of Eternal Spring. Cuernavaca is an ideal place to study in that it is close to many interesting places: Mexico City, Puebla, Acapulco, Taxco, Tepotzlán, archeological sites as well as beautiful natural refuges.
This study program has been highly successful, and over the years, many university and community college students have enjoyed learning Spanish at EL CENTRO along with community members that have included college administrators, lawyers, doctors, teachers and business people. Families are welcome to participate in the program.
Virginia R. Foster, Ph.D. has been resident director of the program and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 602.254.9620.
I'm a foodie in Phoenix, AZ. My Mom's and Aunt's teachings have made me a well-rounded kitchen wench, since my Mom is a great baker and my Aunt is an amazing cook. Recently I've been inspired to share food experiences with you. I enjoy hearing about your recipes that worked well (or flopped!) or about food you have tried that is especially interesting and/or yummy.
