World Languages Apartments - Living Learning Community
The World Languages Apartments provide students the opportunity to live and speak the target language together all of the time. In these apartments, students speak Spanish and hold cultural activities, with the goal of creating a rich environment to help improve language proficiency and cultural competence. The World Languages Apartments are on the third floor of Bogstad Manor, and applications are due at the end of January for the fall semester. Contact any Spanish professor if you are interested, and fill out an application.
Spanish Theater is a one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary opportunity that combines Spanish and theater. Under the direction of a faculty member, students have the opportunity to participate in the staging of a full-length, fully staged production of a play completely in Spanish. This is a truly immersion experience where students learn the Spanish language and Hispanic literature along with the art of theater. The play project is normally associated with a 300 or 400 level class, and students receive credit for the experience.
The Spanish Club is open to all students with an interest in Spanish language, cultures, and society. Activities throughout the year include a Welcome Party, participating in the Homecoming parade, going to Acapulco for dinner, playing soccer, watching movies, going to the Concordia Language Villages, and celebrating several different holidays from Spanish-speaking countries.

Put your Spanish to use by leading after-school programs in local schools.
Independent Study Opportunity at Horizon Middle School: Students in 300 and 400 level classes have the opportunity to register for an independent study for .25 credits at Horizon Middle School in Moorhead. Students will work two mornings a week with Horizon students who are graduates of the Elementary Spanish Immersion program.
Participate in an internship to further your Spanish-speaking skills and to broaden your perspective.
