The Immersion Program


The nature of OUR program is all about conversation, designed to depart from book study and grammar lessons and to instead actively use Spanish in a variety of contexts. Participants will be exposed to a full spectrum of the language, a variety of accents and will get over any intimidation about speaking.

OUR 8-day immersion has been described as “intense,” “amazing,” “inspiring,” “stimulating,” “eye-opening,” and “magical” just to pick a few of the words we hear at the end of a program.

Pueblo Español is all about full Spanish immersion, which means, due to the number of hours of listening and speaking per day the mental focus can be intense! However, it will also be fun and rewarding. If you are looking for a casual program with just a few hours of language practice per day and a lot of free time, this may not be the course for you. If you are a true beginner with no Spanish, this is also not the course for you as this kind of immersion works best (and has the most impressive results) when you start with enough Spanish to communicate on a basic level and therefore are at a great place to start accruing more vocabulary, correcting mistakes, and becoming more confident and fluid in your speaking. 

We recommend a ‘can do’ attitude and a resolve for getting as much out of the program as possible. If you put in the time, you WILL see the results. And you’ll enjoy chatting with people from all around the world (and Spain), being immersed in beautiful places and eating great Spanish food while doing so.

If you’re not sure of your Spanish level we can schedule a level test with you, just send us an email.

If you’re ready to jump in with both feet and give 100% effort towards speaking more Spanish- Pueblo Espanol is for you!

WHAT DOES THE PROGRAM INVOLVE?

A stimulating and entertaining atmosphere made comfortable by our staff.
A schedule designed and organized so students gain confidence in their comprehension and communication skills.
A noticeable improvement in listening and communication skills, as well improving self-confidence when speaking.


CONVERSATION-ORIENTATED ACTIVITIES


Breakfast, lunch and dinner

Two Spanish speakers and two students are seated at each table.  Even meal time is a valuable moment to continue listening and speaking while enjoying the local cuisine.

One-to-one

This is the “star”activity at Pueblo Español. A Spanish speaker talks to a student during a 50 minute session. Every hour you switch partners, so that you speak with a volunteer with a different accent.

Telephone sessions

Day-to-day, real-life communication situations over the phone. Whether you need to negotiate a contract or make travel arrangements you can practice this dynamic through telephone sessions. Either way the focused listening will be just what your ear needs!


Conference calls

Numerous role-play situations are scheduled to help to build confidence in conference call situations and interactive meetings.

Variety hour

In order to facilitate learning and overcome barriers, enjoying the experience is fundamental.  Most evenings before dinner, the Pueblo Español participants meet for an hour to laugh and learn through presentations, performances, sketches, and more.

Presentations

Each student is presented the task of preparing 1 or 2 presentations.  Here, the native-speakers help the students learn to use the language with more precision.

RESULTS

¡Piensa en Español, vive la experiencia!


Measuring the value of the Pueblo Español program needs to be seen from the perspective of the amount of contact you will have with native-speakers in a variety of social situations. We give you the chance to experience the “live” language with a variety of carefully selected native-speakers who will be sure to both challenge and encourage. A week at Pueblo Español has been compared to the equivalent of 1-2 typical months in a country.
