IMMERSION SPANISH for an older group - It's "six months notice time" again for an immersion Spanish trip. We are organizing a group of "mostly over 50" folk for two weeks of fun and learning centered in Cuernavaca, Mexico. This trip is scheduled the end of July and will include four nights in Oaxaca because that's another amazing place to visit. Immersion Spanish can go on anywhere and the trip is planned during the festival of La Guelaguetza so there will be more activities and vendors and things to do and see at that time in Oaxaca. The program includes room and board, three hours a day of private or semi-private Spanish lessons at your level (beginning or advanced), day trips to local areas of interest and the stay in Oaxaca. $1,600 will cover all expenses with the exception of airfare. For more information, please contact Judy Skillings at 937-562-1900 or .
