Experience the cultures of all Latin American countries without leaving the U.S. For a number of years, we have looked for the best way to introduce teachers and students to the Miami MultiCultural Experience. We think we have found the way to do it.
A Cultural Immersion & Language Learning Program for:
- the teacher or professor who needs a super-intensive refresher/review; and / or who wants a better understanding of the cultures of many countries;
- the executive or professional who needs to improve language proficiency in a limited period of time;
- the tourist who appreciates the fact that Miami has much to offer culturally.
- Lodging is in homes of native speakers of the language, or in apartments or hotels.
- Miami is not a monolithic community. All nations of Latin America are represented. As more and more immigrants arrive from different countries, the Hispanic population of Miami is becoming more diverse and balanced. There are many viewpoints, not just those that you hear about on television.
There is so much here, we want you to take advantage of all that multicultural Miami has to offer.
- Converse only in Spanish – so many opportunities to do this.
- Go to Spanish movies & theater.
- Taste the foods of a panoply of nations.
- Take “café con leche” breaks.
- Participate in discussions;
- listen to widely varying points of view.
- Visit art galleries & artisan workshops.
- (Miami hosts Art Basel & other major art shows)
- Celebrate national holidays & religious festivals.
- Dance to salsa music; learn to tango.
MultiCultural Miami, known as the “Gateway to the Americas,” is a perfect place to learn Spanish.
Miami (Miami-Dade County) is over 65% Hispanic. Many areas, Little Havana, Hialeah, Westchester, etc. are above 90% Hispanic.
In contrast with other cities in the U.S. with a high Hispanic population, the Hispanic population of Miami is much better educated. The influx of well educated native speakers insures that you hear Spanish, not Spanglish.
