Shop and Learn Spanish Language Course in Puerto Vallarta

September 20, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
SAANTA FE, NEW MEXICO A newly designed Spanish Language Course is available in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for two weeks beginning November 4, 2006, through BelleCora Workshops. The BelleCora Spanish Language course allows each participant to choose options that work best for them in a unique approach among Spanish language immersion courses and Spanish language vacations.

The highly individualized design of BelleCora’s Spanish language immersion gives each participant daily personal instruction as well as exposure to the Spanish language in the community. Students spend a private hour in the morning with a qualified instructor and two hours in a group of three participants with an instructor. Each afternoon participants spend three to five hours in the community with instructors on Spanish-speaking-only adventures. These field trips provide the opportunity to hear and speak Spanish in local restaurants, businesses, artisan’s workshops, institutions, and on the beach. A sort of “Shop and Learn” or “Tour and Learn” concept, this Spanish language immersion provides the opportunity to learn Spanish, while learning about the culture, shopping, sight-seeing, swimming and catching some sun.

The immersion aspect of this Spanish language course is heavily dependent on interaction in the community, doing what tourists do, rather than exposure to the Spanish in a home stay atmosphere, which many Spanish language immersion courses depend on. Rather students stay together, with an all Spanish speaking staff in a luxurious villa style accommodation.

For those who prefer a more traditional Spanish language course, BelleCora Workshops will arrange classroom instruction through the University of Guadalajara Spanish Language program in Puerto Vallarta.

Fees for the program cover tuition/instruction, registration, placement analysis, books and materials, round-trip ground transportation from Puerto Vallarta Airport to accommodation, ground transportation/expense for all program related excursions, housing, and two meals daily.

BelleCora Workshops have conducted programs in Puerto Vallarta for six years. For information on the BelleCora Spanish Language Immersion program, accommodation and fees go to their website at and view the Spanish Course page or call 505-310-0703.
