What does Total immersion mean?

  • One teacher, one student.
  • 4 or 6 hours daily intensive study.
  • 5 or 6 days a week.
  • Live with a Bolivian family.
  • Progress at their own speed
  • Design you own program.
  • Change your teacher every week if you want!

Usually classes are held between Monday and Friday. Mornings (8:30am – 12:30 pm) or afternoons (2:30 pm – 6:30 pm). You can even have classes on Saturdays.

We can also provide you with group lessons, which are cheaper and allow more interaction with fellow students. We pride ourselves on the quality of these courses. You will be with others also keen to learn at the same level. By having others in the class it is an excellent way to stay motivated, practice what you are learning and to meet other students.

In the conversation/practical classes group members frequently go on trips around town and practice real world situations. The groups are very small, normally 2 or 3 people. In fact, the maximum per class is only 4! So you will get a lot of attention and your learning needs will be catered for. We have various teaching materials including grammar and exercise books with clear explanations. The teachers use these materials to supplement their teaching.

The teacher will not concentrate on details of grammar, but will stress vocabulary development. Verbs will be taught that cover the various situations encountered in the daily travelers’ life:

  • Common situations for travelers
  • Bus stations, taxis, subway maps
  • Hotels
  • Supermarkets
  • Restaurants
  • Travel Agencies
  • Airports
  • Banks
  • Directions

Many immigrants into Bolivia, such as retirees, speak Spanish well, but know little about the details of Spanish grammar. The same might be said for many European students; they have learned the language, traveling on their own, but lack the knowledge to use correct grammatical structure. These students may wish to place a greater emphasis on the study of Spanish grammar in order to become more accurate and fluent.
Many students who join us in the summer months of June, July and August are young people who wish to study Spanish because they desire to supplement their studies in colleges and universities around the world. Our teachers, in these cases, have structured the coursework with grammar, conversation, writing, pronunciation, etc. The ratio of one student to one teacher works well in these situations. The professionalism and experience of the teacher may be of immense benefit to young people seeking clarification and experience with speaking the language on a daily basis under close scrutiny.
We have a great demand from professionals like medical students, nurses and business people who want to learn Spanish language associated with technical vocabulary of their focus. We are able to provide teachers who are experienced with the conveyance of e.g. medical or business vocabulary. The application of Spanish language skills in relation to employment has increased greatly in recent years. Our teachers will conduct needs assessment, in conjunction with the student involved, and prepare a course of study to meet these specific needs. The result is the promotion of ever better communications within a professional medical setting.

Developmentally, children often are ready to learn Spanish, and will surprise adults with their rapid progress when placed in a total immersion environment
