Spanish-Only Policy

Improve your ability to understand and express yourself in Spanish

On All Spanish & Advanced-Spanish Programs

The Spanish-Only Policy requires students to speak only Spanish during class times, while in homestays, and at all Spanish Studies Abroad-related events. This tool promotes cultural integration and reflects the commitment that SSA students make to immerse themselves in a new culture. The benefits of adhering to the SpanishOnly Policy, no matter your initial language level, are great:

  • You will improve your ability to understand and express yourself in Spanish.
  • As fluency increases, you will gain a greater awareness of the local culture while developing relationships with your host family, professors, and friends.
  • You will experience a greater feeling of accomplishment in your integration while demonstrating a higher level of respect toward the local culture.

There is no better method for learning a language than immersion supplemented by class work. To help you get the most out of your experience, all your fellow students attending programs with SSA are required to adhere to the Spanish-Only Policy.
