Living with a
Mexican family Students are urged to take advantage of this optional program. A number
of local families have been chosen by our faculty to play host to
visiting students. This phase of the program is highly important because
students speak Spanish away from the classroom in natural day-to-day
surroundings. These real life conversational situations help the student
to understand the rich heritage of the Mexican culture and to experience
Mexican family life in a truly natural and friendly manner.
Cultural Tours &
Learning a language is more than simply being able to speak correctly.
At the Center we believe that a language reflects the culture of the
people. To help our students better understand the rich cultures of the
peoples of Mexico and Latin America, we ask them to participate in a
number of cultural activities, including field trip tours to local
museums and other sites of historical and cultural interest. The
enriching experience of cultural field trips is an option we hope all
students will exercise during their stay in Ensenada. The Center regularly takes students to the historical museum at Estero
Beach and on tours at the city's Cultural Center in the heart of the
city itself. The "Riviera del Pac�fico," once a huge gambling casino
owned by boxing great Jack Dempsey, today houses the Ensenada Cultural
Center, a site that should be on everyone's must see list. Throughout
the year, the Cultural Center plays host to such events as concerts,
exhibits and theatre performances. Other visits include the Museo de
Ciencias which is devoted to both the natural and physical sciences plus
the art gallery.
Our students not only come to learn Spanish, but they also come to experience the
Mexican culture and the warmth of Mexico.
Courses are held
throughout the year. Weekday courses are offered year-round, Monday
