Guidance and opportunity
Hiram College believes that immersion is an important part of learning the language. The College invites international students from Spanish-speaking universities to serve as on campus teaching assistants, providing students with opportunities to practice speaking their language of study in real-life, informal situations.
All students also have the opportunity to study abroad. Hiram faculty lead trips to Spain regularly, which provide students with opportunities to fully immerse themselves in the language and culture, while living with host families. Students can also take shorter study-abroad trips to Spain and the Dominican Republic during the 3-week term.
Students can also join the student-run club, LUNA, which hosts discussions, speakers, activities, field trips and social events all related to the Latino culture.
