SPANISH TOTAL IMMERSION PROGRAM FOR FAMILIES
(Summer 2022)

Description: The following Linguistic-Cultural program will take place during the summer 2022 focused on parents and children in family, interested in acquiring and/ or developing the Spanish language in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico for four weeks in a comfortable and safe environment in a total exposure to culture and language.

 

General objective: Acquire and/or develop communicative competence with innovative customized techniques in small groups of students (maximum 6) on a similar linguistic level with formal practice sessions and real activities in Spanish in interesting and meaningful cultural contexts for daily life.

 

Cultural subject: Language is a key instrument in the acquisition of values and cultural wealth; these will be the main triggers during the program. Therefore, the aspects of the day to day, as well as the historical and cultural background are an important part of the content of the Program in ATIC. Thus, in the case of children, they will perform a series of artistic and recreational activities in a healthy and fun environment.

 

Family: Undoubtedly, the Mexican family is decisive for the best development of the language and real understanding of the culture. The Mexican home, where our students spend enough time to get involved with it, represents for us a magnificent living laboratory with a great impact for our students.

 

Complementary Activities: Throughout your stay we will carry out a series of complementary activities, organized by the school or the mexican families.

 

Excursions: These excursions take place locally and to places outside the city of Cuernavaca. It is a combination of visits to culturally important places and unforgettable recreational places for students.

 

Specific objectives: To develop linguistic and cultural tools based on daily and immediate needs, as well as a series of theoretical and practical presentations (family, music, dance, sport, etc.) in order to develop a better understanding of Mexican/ Hispanic culture.

 

* It is worth mentioning, we will have visits to elementary schools, during the breaks of Mexican children, with the purpose of interacting with Mexican children. Also, during

   the afternoon activities, we will invite Mexican children to participate in the activities with their children.

 

*If the mother and / or father do not wish to participate in the program, they may participate in all complementary activities and excursions.

 

*Children under 6 years old, of course we also have a program for them; They will have a teacher who, in addition to lovingly caring for them, the teacher will organize didactic
