Intensive Spanish Language & Chilean Culture
Pontificia Universidad Católica de ValparaísoJanuary 2017 + Service-Learning (Jan 1, 2017 to Mar 25, 2017)
Catalog Code: IVPEM0117
The Intensive Month program is designed for students who want to focus on language acquisition. The January session offers intermediate and advanced level courses. All courses are taught at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso by local university professors. ISA participants take classes alongside other international students.
During the last eight weeks of the program, students will work 15-35 hours per week at a host organization, increasing language proficiency and gaining valuable international experience. Placements are arranged prior to arrival in the host country and language requirements may vary. Visit the ISA Service-Learning website for more information on placement opportunities.
Service-Learning placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will develop a Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours, and program activities.
Students can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the Portfolio. Visit the Academic Credit page of the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
