Students acquire language through linguistic and cultural immersion in this four-week program. Maret students experience a full-immersion environment, learning Spanish in context through daily life, interactive lessons, and cultural experiences. They reside in two renovated farmhouses near Burgos and Granada. The morning and evening lessons interact with the environment and setting. Students also learn the language through activities and field trips, communicating solely in Spanish. Activities include cooking lessons; learning from local cheese makers, potters, and olive growers; hiking and other outdoor activities; and numerous cultural field trips.
