Description

Students at The College at Brockport's program will study at Universidad Internacional (UNINTER). Students choosing to enroll in the Spanish Language Immersion program through Brockport will study at UNINTER's Center for Linguistic & Multicultural Studies (CLMS), which was founded in 1980 with a mission to teach the Spanish language and Mexican culture exclusively to foreign students. In 1997, UNINTER expanded and opened its doors to Mexican students seeking their undergraduate and graduate degrees. This created the opportunity for international students to complete work toward their undergraduate studies in Mexico outside the Spanish Language.

- Build your self-esteem and self-confidence

Highlights

Choosing to learn Spanish in Cuernavaca, Mexico is a very exciting decision for many reasons. Cuernavaca is known internationally as the "City of Eternal Spring" because of its nearly perfect climate - the city boasts year round temperatures of 75 to 80 degrees. Cuernavaca is ideally located in central Mexico within easy reach of Mexico City, Teotihuacan, Acapulco, Puebla, Taxco, and many other fascinating places.

Extracurricular Activities:
Extracurricular activities at UNINTER provide students with the opportunity to have fun, visit places, share ideas and most importantly practice Spanish with native speakers. There are many options for those students who wish to stay active and practice a sport while they are here. Every week, staff members at UNINTER organize outings to practice sports and games for both Mexican and international students. This is an excellent way to practice the Spanish you have learned in your classes while making new friends and being part of a team. Some of the sports offered are basketball, tennis, soccer, swimming, football, track, volleyball, and self-defense.

Also offered are several workshops and classes such as cooking, yoga, salsa, and Latin jazz. In addition, every week, there is a Cafe Social in which students meet at a different restaurant each week to relax, eat, make friends, and practice their Spanish in an out of school environment.

Housing:
Housing for participants in the Brockport Cuernavaca Program is in homestays with Spanish-speaking families in Cuernavaca. Students request family type and are placed accordingly by UNINTER.
The basic homestay (included in the "Cost of Program" fees) is based on single accommodation and includes a full (21 meals per week) meal plan.

Orientation:
The Saturday of the week before the start of classes, each student will participate in a pre-session orientation program in Cuernavaca organized by the Program's Director. This orientation will introduce participants to academic and student life in Mexico and Cuernavaca. A portion of this orientation is devoted to a language examination that will determine the participant's placement for language instruction.

Courses:
3 credits (undergraduate or graduate) will be awarded to students for this program.

Students at The College at Brockport's program will study at Universidad Internacional (UNINTER). Students will study at UNINTER's Center for Linguistic & Multicultural Studies (CLMS), which was founded in 1980 with a mission to teach the Spanish language and Mexican culture exclusively to foreign students. Since its inception, CLMS has worked using the "Group 5 System," where no more than 5 students are assigned to a professor, and they are grouped according to the level of current Spanish fluency.

UNINTER offers several optional classes in the afternoon at no extra cost. These classes provide additional enrichment and a better understanding of the Spanish language. Classes range from pronunciation to advanced grammar to a conversation workshop. Students may also request a session of individual attention to work on troublesome areas.
