IMAC Spanish Language Programs Scholarship

IMAC – Spanish Language Programs are pleased to offer ACTFL members a scholarship for four (4) weeks of Spanish language study during the Summer 2014.

With over forty years of experience, we are the only language school in our region (and perhaps the only one in Mexico) with official accreditation for both DELE testing from The Ministry for Education of Spain and The Teaching of Spanish as a Foreign Language from The Secretary of Education of Mexico. Moreover, our organization has been granted status as a Socially Responsible Institution. To our knowledge, we are the only language school in Mexico to have received this coveted award. High academic standards are obviously high while our classes are yet filled with enjoyable and fun activities.

In addition to quality instruction in the classroom, IMAC in Guadalajara offers something very unique to Spanish Language students. In the same facility, you will have access to a Latin American cultural exchange program with other students that you won’t find with any other Spanish Language course. There are limitless benefits to joining together with native speakers for conversation classes, dance lessons, Karaoke, ceramics classes, guitar lessons and field trips. These students are excited to share their language and traditions with you and are eager to learn about yours. You will find no other Spanish course with such valuable interaction.

Guadalajara, Mexico has been declared, “The Most Mexican City,” because of its authenticity, non-commercialization and the birthplace of Tequila beverage as well as Mariachi music. It basks in the glory of its past, while celebrating its promising place in the future. Here, you will find all of the modern conveniences of a major metropolitan area gracefully blended with all there is to love about Mexico’s past.
