Spanish Study Abroad

Orientation sessions

LCCC International AmbassadorsEach month during the spring semester (January through May) students attend an orientation/lecture session to prepare them for the abroad experience. Expectations and objectives for the program are discussed in details as well as other pertinent information.

The courses can be taken for credit (3 credit hour) or audit (with instructor’s permission).

Additional Information

A travel waiver and other documents will be required. LCCC provides a faculty escort during the length of the program(s) above. All participants must abide by the study abroad short term policy.

During the study abroad program, participants attend four hour a day classes, usually Monday- Friday, at a private language school. They develop a deep understanding of the host country’s culture by living with a local family during the duration of the program. They also, participate in visits to local museums, churches, markets and other cultural, historical or archeological sites. Some weekends participants visit other parts of the country as well. Participants use their newly learned oral linguistic skills by participating in volunteer programs at area orphanages, hospitals and children schools during the week.
