Cultural classes' methodology

Practice Immersion was conceived to enhance students' learning of the Spanish language and culture through a series of didactic activities, in the field, with local people, in their environment, at work or at home. Conferences and interviews give students the opportunity to listen and talk to Madrileos, thus getting first-hand insights and gaining valuable cross-cultural knowledge. Interacting with Spaniards on a daily basis, provides students with a variety of options to apply the language they've studied in class through grammar and conversation. Friday lunch provide students with the opportunity to socialize with their teachers while practicing Spanish in an informal environment.
