This study abroad component (offered in Spring 2023) is designed in collaboration with Habla: the Center for Language and Culture. Habla is a language school and educational center based in Mérida, Mexico that engages students in learning Spanish through participatory and arts-based methods. Evergreen faculty and Habla staff work closely to design the program, plan field trips and community work, and ensure that language courses are aligned with students’ language level and the themes and content of The Spanish-Speaking World program.
Throughout this study abroad program you will: refine your Spanish-language skills through language classes at Habla, deepen your knowledge of the natural, historical and social contexts of the Yucatán Peninsula and Mexico more broadly, and establish relationships with the local community through homestays and community-based learning at organizations in Mérida.
All classes during spring quarter will be conducted entirely in Spanish, and is available to students at all levels of Spanish language learning.
