LITA is a unique, rural focused language immersion program in Spain. Our dynamic, academically challenging programs offer students a different approach to exploring the vibrant elements of Spanish language and culture. Through small groups and individual attention throughout the trip process, LITA offers personal, highly authentic immersive experiences to motivated students with a true commitment to language acquisition.
Programs are five and a half weeks in length and center around a three-week homestay with families in a small/medium sized community in northern or southern Spain. During this time, students elect to participate in a volunteer internship with a local business or take language classes and complete an independent research project on a cultural topic of their choice. The remaining two weeks of each trip are spent exploring other more rural areas of the country, focusing on language study as it relates to family life, food, music, history, art and outdoor experiences.
