El Lago del Bosque is the name of the Spanish Language Village.
At El Lago del Bosque, you’ll learn Spanish in a traditional summer camp setting. Spanish language classes are tailored to learners of all ages and stages. Whether you’re looking for an early introduction or an intensive language program, we’ll meet your level of language and help you to advance during a 1, 2 or 4 week session.
Our Spanish language programs offer participants of every age a virtual world tour of Spanish cultures. Our caring, professional staff comes from all corners of the Spanish-speaking world, and they love to share their traditions. You may be served an asado argentina (Argentine barbecue) one evening and paella the next. And everyone enjoys the fun activities, from singing Spanish songs and learning traditional dances like la salsa and el tango.
You'll be immersed in the sights, sounds, tastes, and experiences of the Spanish-speaking world. When you're surrounded by dedicated counselors who are devoted to helping you understand the Spanish language and customs from your first hola (hello) until your final adiós (good bye), you'll amaze yourself with how much you can learn. While the programs vary by length, location, focus and age-group, the most important features stay the same across our programs.
Every session provides the opportunity to use Spanish language and cultures while participating in activities such as canto (singing), telenovela (the Village soap opera) and la fogata (campfire). You will have many opportunities to practice your español while participating in athletic and cultural activities such as fútbol (soccer), canoas (canoeing),periodismo (journalism), culinaria (cooking), baile (dance) and arte. There's always something for you to enjoy.
