Ideally 2 weeks in a language program abroad is sufficient enough to get some of the basics of Spanish. More importantly, your exposure to culture is far more enriching, rather than spending it in a hotel; taking day trips with several tourists, as they board buses, and hurrying you up to the next location. In the 2 weeks, you will most likely be conversing in Spanish, but not fluently. In order to fully grasp the language, you need to commit a fair amount of time to get more practice. But as you immerse yourself into the community, you will have a better understanding on the structure of learning a language abroad. Live, eat, study, and do some of the activities the locals do, plus speak their lingo and you will be enhancing your Spanish skills level at a faster rate.
2 weeks is also a good way to connect with other students taking the course, connect with new friends around the world. Be invited to other locations or countries, as you bond with new friends.
Kick some of the travel bug’s itch by taking a 2 week course. Often times, many travelers feel 1 week is too short, and 2 weeks is sufficient enough. Considering most of the workforce in the US is usually only allowed 2 week’s vacation time.
If planning to partake on a 2 week Language course, consider it as a good way to brush up on your Spanish, excel to a new level, take a crash course on the basics of Spanish, or your work is paying for the trip as a means of learning a new skill.
