SP200*: Study Abroad
SP200*: Study Abroad is an annual spring course and all-inclusive, international immersion experience in a Spanish-speaking country. This 1.0-credit course is led by a Laurier faculty member. At the destination abroad, the target language immersion experience incorporates all the essential areas of Spanish language learning. Activities in class are designed to sharpen vocabulary, grammar, speaking, and reading skills. Fluency and listening comprehension are further developed through constant interaction in Spanish not only in the classroom but also through host families, community members, and cultural immersion. Writing skills are emphasized via a cultural immersion journal of daily entries. An understanding of the target culture is obtained during extracurricular guided tours and day trips which also complement themes learned in and out of the classroom.
The SP200 package includes: textbook; international airfare and all transportation abroad; homestay with Spanish-speaking families including meals, linens, and laundry service; transportation, all hotel accommodations, guided tours and entrance tickets to all excursions and day trips; cultural activities and conversational practice with native Spanish speakers; and visits to over a dozen towns abroad.
