From the MODERN LANGUAGE DEPT:


Summer Language Study / Home-stay / Travel Program to SPAIN
The ISM High School Modern Language Department is pleased to announce its Summer Language Study / Home-
stay / Travel Program to Spain from June 6th to July 4th 2009 for students aged 13 to 19 years old.
The program aims to develop students’ language proficiency and to broaden his/her cultural knowledge. This
program is being offered in cooperation with Escuela Internacional Madrid (TANDEM), a school in Madrid and San
Sebastian, Spain. Students will continue learning and, more importantly, will practice Spanish through total
immersion in the classes and during the home-stay. The school finds families for students to stay with, assists in
locating appropriate local resources for the group’s activities, plans outings, maintains a list of local medical and
emergency resources, and helps with the orientation for group leaders.

The language course proposal is to have 4 class sessions (45 minutes each) of language and culture from Monday
to Friday, from 09.30 to 13.00 each day (with a break from 11.00 to 11.30). The classes will include language
and culture subjects as well as adequate preparation for the cultural visits. Students will complete a placement
test in order for the school to form groups based on the level of Spanish.
Last year, 15 students from ISM traveled to Spain and all of them reported dramatic improvements in their
acquisition of the Spanish language as well as outstanding experiences with their home-stay families and one
another during their time in Spain.

If you are interested in receiving more information about this summer course, please contact Laurie Atilano or
Samantha Ramos in the High School Office, or email Adriana Vargas at vargasa@ismanila.org.
