CULTURAL LINGUISTIC PROGRAM HIGH SCHOOLS
(Summer 2022)

Description: The Linguistic-Cultural program will take place during the summer of 2022 focused on High School students in the family and academic sphere, interested in acquiring and/or develop the Spanish language in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico for four weeks in a comfortable and safe environment in a total immersion and exposure to the culture and language.

 

OVERALL OBJECTIVE: Acquire and/or develop intercultural communicative competence with innovative custom techniques in small groups of students (maximum 6) in a similar linguistic level with formal practice sessions and real Spanish language activities in interesting and significant cultural contexts for daily life and academic requirements.

 

Cultural Topic: Language is a key instrument on the acquisition of values and cultural wealth; these will be the main triggers during the program. For this reason, the day-to-day aspects, as well as the historical and cultural background are an important part of the Program content in ATIC-Fenix. Academic aspect: Based on this specific subject, the program contains a series of theoretical and practical exercises based on their school requirement (high school).

 

Specific objectives: Develop Linguistic and cultural tools on the basis of everyday and immediate needs, as well as a series of theoretical and practical presentations (family, music, dance, football, etc.) in order to develop a better understanding of Mexican/Hispanic Culture. Artistic expressions of great cultural richness will be present from day to day in the different tourist and recreational activities during the program.
