Take advantage of the opportunity to spend a week studying Spanish language and culture in Ensenada, Mexico. Each week, students attend 30 hours of classroom instruction at the Center of Languages, a well-established Mexican language school, in Ensenada. Students who have completed the program are eligible for UCSD Extension credit on a pass/no pass basis as long as they have attended 100% of classroom instruction. Upon arrival at the Center of Languages, each student’s language level is evaluated and advanced students are placed in language levels 7-12. Instructors combine a variety of language training techniques in the classroom, such as structure drills, intensive dialogue practice and role-playing. With classes limited to six students, the environment is highly interactive and students receive concentrated support according to their own learning preferences. Students learn specific grammatical topics and skills, strengthen their conversational skills, and participate in an hourlong afternoon minicourse that examines Mexican cultural topics.
