Cultural Experience Field Trip

Spanish Club promotes and sponsors an annually field trip to a Spanish speaking country.

The aim of these trips is to highlight a full immersion Spanish program that includes language use, cultural experiences, and volunteer opportunity in local schools, and/or orphanages. The club advocates that these trips will offer to students experiences, new cultures, great memories, and way of life. These trips will also allow participants to bring classroom lessons to their own life, provide an environment where the participants can practice language skills in daily situations and will offer to them independence and confidence.
