Universidad de Viña del Mar – Summer Program: Intensive Spanish Language & Chilean Culture
ASA is pleased to offer an intensive Spanish language program in Viña del Mar, Chile during 2, 4-week summer sessions. All students will take a Spanish language placement test upon arrival. All of the Spanish language courses listed under each level are mandatory for students who place into that level. All levels available during the summer session are listed below.
Students are responsible for getting their courses pre-approved for credit by their home institution prior to participation.
All students enrolled in the Viña del Mar summer program may also participate in 18 hours of volunteer work during their program.
Please remember that because Chile is in the southern hemisphere, summer in the U.S. is actually winter there. The winter season is quite mild, with average temperatures between 32 and 59 degrees. Many students take the opportunity to go skiing during their free time at one of the many ski resorts near Santiago.
