Our Language Immersion Seminars are language and culture-intensive, featuring a rich array of authentic music, arts, and crafts of the nations where these languages are spoken. A talented and motivated staff provides expert instruction in small and large group settings catered specifically to participants' language abilities from beginners to native fluency.
In either our week or weekend programs, you’ll participate in language classes, presentations on culture and history, musical experiences, and workshops on ethnic arts and crafts. Beginning learners will enjoy our friendly, activities-based approach to helping you communicate in the target language. Advanced learners benefit from the chance to practice their language with fellow learners and our instructors, and enjoy the opportunity to delve into topics of personal interest within the context of the program.
Home-cooked meals reflect the cuisine of the cultures you're learning about with plenty of delicious foods to choose from. Lunch and dinner are served family style with breakfast served cafeteria style or buffet. The breads, pastries and desserts are home-baked, adding an ethnic flair not easily found elsewhere!
