Central Arizona College offering summer trips to Cuernavaca, Mexico

Central Arizona College is offering its annual Spanish immersion program this summer in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

Students who partake in this experience will attend five hours of Spanish courses daily with native instructors at the Universal language school located in the heart of Cuernavaca according to a press release. Daily activities and excursions will include visits to museums, cooking opportunities, Mexican history classes, and main plaza visits. Additionally, participants will stay with local families, offering intense language practice and a full cultural experience.

Each two-week adventure is worth three credit hours at Central Arizona College. Three different sessions are being offered this summer to help participants improve their Spanish comprehension and speech. The 14-day class sessions will run June 7-20, June 21-July 4 and July 5-18.

“This program is ideal for teachers, school administrators, medical professionals — anyone who works with the high Spanish-speaking populations in Arizona and the neighboring border states,” said John Prevost, the Central Arizona College professor who runs the program. “It is a terrific opportunity for people to improve their education, increase their marketability, and earn continuing education credits. There is definitely a need for this type of program in our communities, especially among professionals and students learning the Spanish language.”

The registration deadline for the program is May 20. There is limited space available so participants are urged to sign up quickly.
