Leon Panetta, Former Director of the CIA reminds us that, “Americans are not, in general, proficient in foreign languages.  That situation… is not good for the nation, not good for humanity, and not good for the individual monolinguist.  For the United States to get to where it needs to be will require a national commitment to strengthening America's foreign language proficiency.”  Immersa Global is working towards reversing this trend in the U.S. by shaking up the study abroad adventure with a fun yet sophisticated twist.

“I absolutely loved the language immersion program in Costa Rica. Not only did my Spanish improve exponentially in a short time… I also had the chance to see stunning national parks and volcanoes. I could not have had a better experience,” states Jaquen Castellanos, Costa Rica 2006.

Immersa Global President and Founder Sheree M. Mitchell, who learned Spanish via language immersion in Costa Rica and Spain, states that, “Seeing, tasting, feeling and living a new culture as a local is the first step to truly becoming a global citizen. The immersion programs are like a rare bottle of red wine: alluring, demanding and sensual, and before they’re even over you already want more.”

Registration starts at $2,395 and is currently open for two upcoming programs:

-    The Heart of Portugal Oct. 28th - Nov. 6th
-    The Spirit of Costa Rica Dec. 2nd - Dec. 11th
