why learn Spanish?

The growth of the necessity to speak Spanish is the United States is inescapable.  We are in an era of globalization, multiculturalism, and fierce competition for jobs. There are currently over 40 million Hispanic, Spanish-speaking residents in the U.S.(1). Moreover, the U.S. Census Bureau projects that by 2050 there will be over 100 million Hispanic, Spanish-speaking residents in the U.S.(2).

Do you have what it takes to learn Spanish? We think you do and also believe that immersion education is, by far, the smartest way to do it!

why immersion education?

"A recent study in the U.S. concluded that people who studied Spanish abroad were found to have made greater gains in oral proficiency and in several aspects of oral fluency compared to those who studied at their home university".

(Collentine & Freed, 2004)

There is no better way to learn a foreign language than by total immersion education.  You have constant contact with native speakers and are constantly immersed in authentic social contexts.  You will arrive as novice tourist and become an seasoned explorer who truly acquires, through active participation, an authentic view of another culture. Total immersion education is by far the most effective and fastest way to learn a foreign language! We believe that intercultural education through study abroad experiences and foreign language acquisition will enrich our society and enlighten those who participate. Conversely, we think that people who do not possess the skill and sensitivity to interact and coexist with people from other cultures and backgrounds are at a disadvantage.

We believe that studying abroad and being multilingual will enhance and enlighten your life by promoting new ways of thinking and living.  In addition to learning Spanish, you will have the time and opportunity to explore the country, develop meaningful relationships with the native people and learn more about their culture.

International education and foreign language acquisition can enhance cross-cultural communication and awareness, facilitate personal growth, improve critical and abstract thinking, increase marketability for future endeavors, and lead to a far greater understanding of societies in other parts of the world.

Take advantage of this unique learning opportunity. It does not matter if you are studying abroad for the first time or are a complete novice Spanish speaker. The time is now!  SPF has the perfect Spanish immersion program in Latin America or Spain to meet your specific needs.
