ABOUT SPANISH IMMERSION
The JLA’s Spanish Immersion program began more than a decade ago. We equip members and sustainers to better serve and build connections through language learning – whether starting from scratch or polishing existing skills. Many learners join and continue taking classes for years, and we invite you to come and experience what keeps them coming back!
There are two ways to participate:
- Paid classes are available to all Provisional, Active, and Sustaining members. Simply fill out this interest form to find out about upcoming classes.
- Active members can also participate in the Spanish Immersion program as their formal placement. In this placement, members will attend a class in both the fall & spring session, and the fees/materials are fully covered by the League. To learn more about the Spanish Immersion placement, contact the Program Chair and be sure to add it to your In-League Placement list.
