Hello everyone and welcome to a new blog about Real Immersion Methodology. 🖐🏼🖐🏼
This week we will talk about the immersion methodology to improve our Spanish quickly. In the case of SPANiCENTER, we work on real immersion in Spanish, but this methodology is used with all languages. When a Spanish student decides to travel to a Spanish-speaking country, in order to practice Spanish and study with natives, this student discovers that there are many options to choose from. There are endless ways and methodologies to improve your knowledge of a second language. 🙄
First, most academies offer students intensive or extensive group courses. These group Spanish courses have some disadvantages. For example, the level of group components is never the same. Meanwhile, there are always students who fail to learn to the fullest. A student cannot make the most of their time if their Spanish teacher has to attend to fifteen other students at the same time. Secondly, in language centers we are going to find individual classes. They are usually intensive courses, always with the same teacher, with a standardized study program. In these courses, the Spanish student always works with the same teacher and this is a big problem.
Of course, it’s always interesting to go to a Spanish-speaking country to learn the language firsthand and enjoy the culture at the same time. However, if you are interested in taking advantage of the trip to improve your mastery of the language, you’ll need to dedicate at least one week to a real immersion course.
The reality of real immersion courses
Many academies and language centers offer courses that carry this name, but you must be careful because most of the time, they are actually intensive or super-intensive courses in the mornings, with cultural activities in the afternoons. in other words, this type of course is not a true immersion course! In a SPANiCENTER’s real immersion program, you should have individual classes (at least four hours per day) and preferably with several professors. It isn’t recommended to follow a book, since your goal isn’t to study specific grammar or vocabulary, but to improve your mastery of the language by competences in a way that is primarily communication-based, much more useful for real life.
Afternoon activities, are designed for groups of 4-5 people at most, and each group will always be accompanied by one or two professors who will guide the activity at all times. Your Spanish immersion continues during mealtimes. One or several professors should accompany you. They will encourage fun conversation in Spanish that will help you be able to use the language in any situation, not just in a work or academic setting, but also for social or recreational purposes. As you can see, this type of course isn’t common. They provide a tremendous boost to anyone who is really interested. Plus, they help us to learn and share different cultures and customs. certainly, this is the best option if you want to improve your Spanish fast and in the best environment!! 🌍🌎
