I was wondering if you have summer Spanish immersion programs for children in the middle school and high school ages. I have twins who will be 13 y/o next summer , and a 15 y/o who I would like to have attend a Spanish immersion program next summer for a month or 6 weeks. If you do, please send me some information on this.
