Visits to Museums and Cultural Sites
If you are enrolled in our full immersion program, each afternoon we will take you out of the classroom and onto the streets. Leon, with its long and rich history is full of fascinating sites. Our visits will both enrich and reinforce your language skills while, helping you understand the cultural context within which our language has developed and grows. With the array of possibilities Leon offers, we might tour the indiginous barrio of Subtiava, with its living traditions that have endured 500 years of colonialism, or visit the Rubén Darío Museum and learn about the poet from the little country of Nicaragua who changed all of Spanish literature; or tour the Ortiz Gurdian Museum with its breathtaking art collection that includes colonial masterpieces, Picassos and contemporary Nicaraguan artists; or learn about the Sandinista revolution. The list of possibilites is too long to include here, so if you have particular interests, let us know, for we have activities to match them.
