Programa de inmersión lingüística y cultural de España

Spanish Language


The Intensive Language courses offer 20 – 25 hours of classroom time a week complimented by excursions to museums, local markets, nearby sights, theaters and other venues. Students have the opportunity to use Spanish in real settings, and meet other Spanish university students at language exchange happenings or any of the numerous social events on campus.
Since culture is the cornerstone of SAM, language is taught through culture with an emphasis on intercultural development. After completion of the intensive course, and once you have reached a Spanish proficiency level of B1 (CEFR) or above, you may enroll in the DiLe. The combination with the DiLe or the Spanish for Academic Purposes course is the perfect pathway to studying an undergraduate degree in Spain.
