Intensive Spanish Program

Universidad Viña del Mar (UVM) offers four-week intensive Spanish Language and Chilean culture sessions in June and July through our Spanish Center.This program provides students, who are unable to spend an entire semester at Universidad Viña del Mar (UVM), the opportunity to travel abroad and improve their Spanish fluency. The small class size enhances the potential for students to improve their language skills in a short period of time.

Students in our Intensive Spanish Program also have the option of completing eight hours of volunteer work. This is a great way for students to experience other aspects of Chilean culture and use their Spanish skills outside of the classroom.
