This course begins on campus and includes travel to a Spanish-speaking country later in the quarter. Students research the Spanish-speaking country to be visited and present information gathered to peers. The class then visits the cities and monuments of the country. Students use the Spanish acquired in the classroom to communicate in everyday situations in hotels, restaurants, cafes, and on tours, and they are able to try a new type of cuisine and lifestyle. Immersion in the culture enables students to experience diverse cultural practices, culinary habits, music styles, and dance forms.
