Activities: Offered Or Arranged
Coastal Spanish Institute offers or helps to arrange a variety of cultural activities, afternoon trips and weekend excursions. We feel these type of activities constitute an important part of any Spanish language immersion program.
Each week depending on student interest and depending what is going on in the surrounding area, Coastal Spanish will offer or help to arrange these activities.
The following are examples of activities that are typically offered or that can be arranged.
