Gain language skills you need in this Spanish immersion with Diana Zuckerman and Arián Gutiérrez Zuckerman.

Immerse yourself in the language and cultures of Spain and Latin America. Spanish Language Immersion for Beginners provides you with the knowledge and skills you need to easily and effectively communicate in Spanish as if you were in a Spanish-speaking country, and you don’t even need a passport.

Taught exclusively in Spanish, we focus on communication rather than grammar to help you form questions and grow your vocabulary. In a comfortable and upbeat environment, instructors Diana Zuckerman and Arián Gutiérrez Zuckerman create real-life situations—in the classroom, the dining hall, and elsewhere on campus—that inspire you to use your Spanish.

Through a variety of interactive activities, including conversations, music, poetry, movement, and meeting native Spanish-speakers, you rapidly develop a level of fluency and ease. Through the use of cognates, blending simple and complex language, repetition, gestures, visuals, and props, you learn to express yourself in any tense—past, present, or future. You master a surprising amount of material to make speaking Spanish more interactive, and a lot more fun.
