What will I learn with HOSS?

HOSS Spanish program is divided into six different levels, from Basic to Upper Advanced. At each level you will learn Spanish within the contemporary cultural context, enjoying regular access to authentic Spanish interactions, visits to different sites, interchange with local students, and a full immersion Spanish language program by living with a host family in a private room and bathroom with 3 meals per day, 7 days a week. Our host families live in the same upper middle class neighbourhood where our school is located. HOSS Spanish teaches a standard Spanish vocabulary and Latin American Spanish grammar.
