Desea Aprender Espanol? (Do You Want to Learn to Speak Spanish?) Immerse Yourself, This Summer!

March 30, 2010

Want to learn to speak Spanish or to improve your fluency? Sign up for a Spanish Language Immersion Experience, July 18-August 7 in Puebla, Mexico, sponsored by California-Nevada United Methodist Volunteers in Mission.

The program is hosted by the Methodist University of Puebla and consists of three weeks of intensive study, including four-hour classes Monday-Friday at the university's language school. Participants will be housed with local families from the Puebla Methodist Church, for thorough immersion in the language and culture of the area – and will take part in UMVIM service projects of a connectional and/or light construction nature on Saturdays.
Cost for the three-week program, including course tuition, lodging at the local church, and meals, will be approximately $700. The cost of airfare is additional. 
The team will not be booking flights as a group. Volunteers are welcome to travel with the team leader (on United) if they choose, or may book their own flights to suit their personal travel needs.
Team meetings are currently being planned. Visit for more information, or contact team leader Jackie Kawashima at
