La Casa de Español
Regent's Spanish Residential Language Community
Do you enjoy learning new languages or speaking in a foreign language? Do you enjoy learning about foreign cultures and different historical traditions? Do you welcome a challenge that you know will shape and change you for the better? If so, then you may want to consider Regent University's Spanish Residential Language Community Program.
The Spanish Residential Language Community Program provides a unique opportunity for a select group of students to immerse themselves in the Spanish language and Hispanic culture through residential life together. Students who have studied the language for at least two years in High School or two college semesters, as well as those who are fluent speakers, are encouraged to apply for admission into the program. Through the course of the full academic year, students will be able to learn and/or improve language proficiency significantly through shared life together and an experiential, academic program that will enhance their knowledge and understanding of the Spanish language and Hispanic culture. Also, there will be recreational activities, community service, local church worship, and casual, non-structured time together—hanging out and having fun!
La Casa de Español is a designated residence hall for students in this program. Beginning in fall semester 2011, the residential language community program will require an oral language proficiency assessment as well as for-credit curricular requirements.
Highly motivated and adventurous students who are willing to commit to learning and living in a unique cultural environment are encouraged to apply. The program is limited to just 12 undergraduate participants between the ages of 18 and 24, so if you are interested, please apply right away. Priority will be given to continuing students of sophomore status or higher.
Space is limited, and we expect this program to fill quickly. Applications are due as soon as possible.
