Reader Reviews : Spanish Language Immersion Schools

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (68 Reviews)


There is perhaps no more effective way of learning Spanish or any other language than by attending a language immersion school, where you can combine classes with experiencing life in an area where your new language is spoken. But language immersion schools can also require a substantial commitment of time and money. If you've attended a Spanish language immersion school in the past year, we'd like to hear what you thought about it as a way of helping others make their decisions.
