Private Immersion Program
The Private Immersion Program is the most flexible program. It features daily one-on-one instruction. Most students choose to study Monday though Friday, however the Private Immersion Program also allows students to design their own itinerary; including weekends. Students also may choose to study the days that best meet their schedule. Weekend and daily Private Immersion Program courses are offered throughout the year.
A program that includes four hours of core curriculum followed by two hours of afternoon activities is recommended. However, it is the student who ultimately decides how the day is structured and what is studied. Some students may prefer a more rigid program of exercises and drills while others elect to focus strictly on conversation.
A specialized academic agenda incorporating terminology specific to a field of interest can also be implemented. Individual instruction means students may choose to go as rapidly or slowly as they desire.
With the individual attention provided by a private class, this means faster earning for the student. These classes can be adapted to fit the student’s individual needs, such as class-times and skill level.

For this reason, we offer a free two-hour conversation session each week for students from both our Spanish and our English classes. This exchange serves as a great way to bridge the gap between our communities and helps to foster inter-cultural friendships.
