Designed for education majors, graduate students in education, and teachers seeking course work applicable to their classroom environments, this shared program between AHA International and the Oregon University System International Programs (OUS) offers a unique opportunity for participants to improve their Spanish language skills while also completing one of the requirements for the ESOL endorsement. The curriculum integrates cultural, academic, and historical content. Participants revisit their own cultures, learn about their future students’ cultures, interview English language learners, and design projects that interweave language and culture. They also participate in excursions to classroom environments as well as visit sites of cultural, historical, and architectural interest. Students live with local families, allowing for rapid language acquisition as well as cultural immersion.

In alternate years the program is offered at the AHA International site in Rosario, Argentina. Students are encouraged to consider studying at both sites to further improve their Spanish, to gain exposure to more than one Spanish dialect, and to enhance their intercultural competence.
