Language Immersion is a week-long MEDLIFE Field Course offering students an in-depth Spanish immersion experience. Rather than place students in a traditional classroom setting, volunteers will explore real-life situations surrounded by Native Spanish speakers to enhance their knowledge of the language.

LanguageGetting outside the classroom

A MEDLIFE Language Immersion Field Course pushes students to expand their knowledge of the Spanish Language and practice their skills in the real world. From conversational Spanish with the locals to practical skills like ordering food, this field course is the perfect opportunity to improve your Spanish abilities.

The MEDLIFE Difference:
Language Immersion Field Course


Real World Practice

Throughout your week in Latin America, you’ll have numerous opportunities to practice what you’ve learned. From organized group activities – like visiting a market or going to a weaving workshop at a local non-profit – to your day to day interactions with community members, you will be speaking in Spanish all week long.


Learning from Native Speakers

Our Language Immersion Field Courses are taught by local community members who speak the language, understand local dialects and vocabulary, and provide culturally relevant courses.


Supporting Impoverished Communities

The donation goal from your course directly supports MEDLIFE’s medicine, education, and development work in the communities where we work. In addition to learning a new skill, you are supporting communities in need.


Language Learning Through Service

During the Field Course, volunteers will spend time learning about a foreign language and culture through first-hand experiences, at our Mobile Clinics. They will spend time with patients, community members, and professionals practicing their conversational skills and also discussing current local and global issues.

Not only was I able to participate in a week long Mobile Clinic, shadowing doctors of all types of specialties including pharmacy, dentistry, gynecology, and more, but I was also able to learn about the culture and visit incredible places.

One thing that I really loved about this trip was that MEDLIFE made sure that the volunteers got an understanding of the complexity of issues that lead to underprivileged people in communities outside of the main city

Whether it was basketball with the local kids, assisting the doctors, talking with families, building washrooms, holding babies, or spending time with the people who were on the SLT with me, this was an amazing opportunity that I would do over and over again.

As an aspiring physician, MEDLIFE motivated me to further continue my goal of becoming a doctor. In fact, I enjoyed the Tanzania Service Learning Trip so much that I decided to go on another trip to Cusco, Peru.
