Introduction Latin American Studies: Cordoba, Argentina (High School)
Study Latin America. Speak Spanish. Live with a host family.
Immerse yourself in Córdoba, an old-meets-new city with contemporary resources next to colonial-era monasteries, churches, theaters, and buildings. Rapidly improve your Spanish language skills as you learn about the region’s rich cultural traditions and political and religious identities. Spend the morning in class and then head into the city in the afternoon with classmates to use your Spanish and see all that Córdoba has to offer. You’ll stay with an Argentine family, a perfect way to become part of the local community.
This program is for students who want to step out of their comfort zone and come to understand Brazil from a local perspective. The basic curriculum is a combination of Portuguese language courses and electives taught in English, but intermediate and advanced students may opt for full immersion by taking direct enroll courses in Portuguese alongside Brazilian peers. Excursions provide insider's access, allowing students to engage with Brazilian society as actors, not spectators. Students of all Portuguese language levels and majors are welcome.
