Experience Learning Immersed In Spanish Culture
Language is about more than linguistics, phonetics, grammar, and composition. It’s about art, history, culture, and connection. Travel to either Spain or South America. Live with a Spanish-speaking host family. Maximize your learning experience as you immerse yourself in the Spanish language and culture.
Practice What You Teach
Observe real-world teachers and students. Participate in actual classroom studies and discussions. Teach lessons in local public schools. Receive critical feedback from expert mentors. It’s student teaching, elevated at NGU.
Attend local Hispanic-speaking churches. Serve and worship with fellow Christians in a language, culture, and community outside your own. Witness the beauty of God’s diverse kingdom as you fine-tune your Spanish-speaking skills.
A Technical (and Practical) Approach to Spanish Education
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
