Intensive Spanish in Mexico (Puebla)

A four-week program designed for students who wish to acquire proficiency in Spanish while being immersed in Mexican culture.  The Program includes lectures, conversation hours and field trips that support language proficiency and are inspired by the University’s mission of social justice.  The Puebla program is designed not only as a language immersion course, but also as a unique cultural and social experience that includes a wide range of activities, such as language-conversation exchanges with Mexican students, visits to historical sites, a weekend with an indigenous community, workshops on Mexican art, etc.  Offered in collaboration with Universidad Iberoamericana-Puebla and USF’s Spanish and Latin American Studies Program.

Students who receive a passing grade of “C” or better in the class will fulfill their 3rd semester of Spanish.

Requirements: Students must have achieved proficiency equivalent to the first two Spanish semesters, which may be taken in combination as Spanish 100 (Intensive Spanish).
