Spanish Language Immersion in Puerto Rico

For Teachers with Student Groups

Try Puerto Rico for Spanish language immersion travel! With 270 miles of breathtaking white, red and black-sand beaches, the only tropical rainforest in the United States, and a unique cuisine that combines Mexican and Caribbean flavors, it’s no wonder Puerto Rico is known as the Island of Enchantment. Our short-term language immersion programs to Puerto Rico offer teachers and student groups the opportunity to explore this beautiful United States Territory. Did you know that while Puerto Rico is a United States territory, they compete individually in both the Olympics and Miss Universe Pageant? Students become temporary locals, immersing themselves in Puerto Rican daily life while practicing their Spanish through our signature Family Stay Experience®. There they will learn more about Puerto Rico's unique heritage and culture with their familia puertorriqueña.

What People Are Saying

Quality

The partners in Costa Rica are fabulous! Everything was well-organized, and kids were always engaged. Our guide, Jimmy, truly is an educator and ambassador of his country. All of the students and leaders really enjoyed his personality, love of his country and knowledge. The Family Stay Experience was also very wonderful!

Lifelong Value

Know that your child will grow in so many ways from this experience. The program has just the right amount of structure and freedom for the kids to explore in a safe and enjoyable manner. The family stay, while intimidating at first glance, is a unique and amazing opportunity for the kids to really experience the culture that they are being immersed in.

Take Risks

My advice to future participants traveling on this program is to fully step outside of your comfort zone in order to get the most out of this opportunity. You will never regret speaking more of your target language, trying new dishes native to your country, making new friends, or partaking in amazing activities that you normally wouldn't!
