Bolivia Internships partners with Volunteer Bolivia’s language school to offer a host of courses in Spanish designed to meet your needs. The courses offered include intensive or weekly classes, or grammar workshops. Their teachers are smart, caring, and creative and are certified in Spanish as a Second Language. The classes focus on conversation and can be tailored specifically to your internship needs such as helping you prepare documents or presentations in Spanish for your placement. Many of our internships require Spanish and we recommend to everyone a one-week refresher course which will allow you to deepen your ability to speak, read and comprehend.

OVERVIEW OF CLASSES
HOURS: Flexible to fit into your internship schedule.
CURRICULUM: Instructors work in a team, using materials that we have developed to teach both conversation and grammar. All of our professors are professionally trained and have numerous years of experience. Their participatory methodology includes options for local field trips.
EVALUATION: Students will be informally evaluated to determine their language proficiency level and classes will start from where the student is, based on the teacher’s evaluation. During the course adjustments and modifications will be made in order to meet the interests and priorities of students. As much as possible instructors will attend to the individual requirements of the students in order to meet the course objectives.
MATERIALS: Notebook and pen or pencil, any previously used texts, dictionaries or other texts that you feel would help you.
