“A group of eighth-graders recently spent a day immersed in Spanish at nearby Georgetown College. During the field trip, the students realized how their exploration of the language and culture can extend far beyond Bryan Station Middle School.”


Inside Higher Education

“Officials at Georgetown hope that the Inmersión students who take their required critical thinking course in Spanish instead of English… will be exposed to work in the original language — and gain insight into the wider culture that produced the language they are studying.”

USA Today

“Although there might be other colleges or universities that offer required general education courses in Spanish, I am not personally aware of them”– Dr. Emily Spinelli, Director of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese

Language Magazine

“In the future, as the Inmersión en Español program develops, it is hoped that participants will be able to choose among a number of other community-engagement and internship opportunities that utilize their language skills to further their own edification as well as provide a vital service to a state that relies on Spanish-language capabilities for everything from the horse industry to international trade.”

Business Lexington

“Students experience a different version of study abroad right in Scott County, all the while improving their spoken and written Spanish skills.”

Kentucky Forward

“Immersion engages students in a way that’s very different from the classroom – it’s living the language and having a greater access to the culture”
