¡Bienvenido! Journey to Spanish speaking countries —the sights, the sounds, the tastes!—while staying in the heart of Oregon this summer with the Central Oregon Summer Spanish Immersion (COSSI) program, June 26-30, at Central Oregon Community College in Bend.
This five-day, language-focused cultural experience includes a total of 10 hours of Spanish instruction (covering beginner to superior language levels), facilitated conversation groups, and Spanish culture educational sessions with topics ranging from flamenco and Picasso to bullfighting and El Camino de Santiago. It’s an inspirational summer camp for travel lovers, families looking for a prelude to overseas adventure (minimum age is 16), business travelers notching-up their language and cultural skills, and anyone who dreams in Mediterranean blues and cobblestone lanes.
Participants will enjoy a catered dinner, a film night, a flamenco guitar and dance performance, and a keynote presentation by BYU professor of Spanish and American Relations John Rosenberg, recipient of the Officer’s Cross/Order of Civil Merit from Spain. Cost of the program is $500 (not including food or lodging; lodging is available at COCC’s resident hall).
