Language Immersions

Designed for busy people who wish to acquire language skills quickly for personal or professional use, NWLA’s Immersion Weekends are dynamic, 12-hour intensives emphasizing conversational ability in practical situations, complemented by cultural instruction and travel advice.  With the help of our experienced, energetic guides, you are invited to experience the living atmosphere of a language through regional food, music, art, and film. Lively conversational instruction helps lead you toward fluency, teaching patterns of conversation that you can apply to real-life situations like ordering in restaurants, handling money, shopping, and getting around. Typically, Immersions begin Saturday morning and end Sunday late afternoon.  Saturday’s lunch is prepared on-site and served in NWLA’s spacious dining room, and a continental breakfast is included on Sunday morning. Evenings are free to explore Whidbey Island’s towns and beaches or relax at the picturesque NWLA campus.

Discounted lodging for the Immersion Weekends is offered at the NWLA Cultural Center Guesthouse.

NOTE: Programs are subject to cancellation if minimum enrollment is not met.
