A group of
13 enthusiastic Savannah Arts Academy students spent time in Spain this
summer for a first-time Summer Camp/Cultural Immersion Program accompanied by
teachers Airam Gutierrez and Ana Zurita.
In addition to attending 4 hours of
class daily, led by native Spanish speaking teachers at the Clic Language School, students benefitted from the experience of total
immersion with Spanish families
in beautiful Seville, Spain. The
program included visits to different cities such as Madrid, Cordoba,
Granada, and the beaches at Huelva
over the students time exploring the country. The students
also participated in afternoon activities such as riding,
kayaking, pottery, flamenco, movies, music, and more!
Participating students will receive
a Certificate reflecting their 40 hours of intensive instruction that can
boost resumes for their college applications. SAA Spanish teacher and
group organizer Ana Zurita, believes that this type of program is indispensable to
complete the study of a second language and hopes this study abroad program
will grow in the future throughout Savannah-Chatham County Public School
System.To see more photos from the group's trip, click here.
