Spanish courses in Latin America
Our Spanish courses in Latin America accommodate the complete Beginner through Advanced levels, operating year-round, with open enrollment dates. Our excellent testing program allows student placement at their exact level, and weekly evaluations allow students to move at their own pace. They are continually challenged, but not frustrated by being slightly ahead or slightly behind their classmates.
One of the important features of the Academia experience is that, unlike other study abroad programs which require some measure of fluency on the part of the student, students with little or no Spanish may enroll and study for as long as time permits.
Our excellent testing program allows placement of students in Spanish courses at their exact level, and weekly evaluations make it possible to continue to move students through their weekly Spanish courses in such a way that they are continually challenged, but not frustrated by being slightly ahead or slightly behind their classmates.
