Spanish Immersion Cultural Experience (SPICE)

Instructor: Sam Degner

The SPICE program is for those who have completed the Spanish option at MLC or its equivalent. The experience is designed for students to refresh their Spanish skills, immerse themselves in Latin American culture, and get to know brothers and sisters in Christ and their gospel ministry. This is an immersion experience in which participants pledge to speak only Spanish. The program includes one week of Spanish classes, trips to historical and cultural sites, and exposure to local gospel work.

Students who participate in a Spanish ministry experience arranged by Professor Degner during the first semester receive grant money so that the total cost to the student for travel, classes, housing, and entrance fees will be just $500 - $750 (depending on airfare and the status of a grant application).

This year’s program is being planned for Medellín and Ibagué, Colombia. Tentative dates are Sunday, January 5 through Saturday, January 18, 2020. If enrollment must be capped, priority will be given to first-time participants in order of seniority. For more information, contact Professor Degner.
