GHS Spanish Immersion Trip

About the Spanish Immersion Trip

The Spanish Immersion Trip is open to 9th - 11th grade students interested in spending two weeks in Salamanca, Spain, learning about Spanish culture, while studying the Spanish language. Students will attend four hours of language class each day, before setting out in the afternoons with local guides to explore the historic city of Salamanca. Students will reside in host families with another Glastonbury High School student. This program will help to increase student proficiency in the Spanish language.
