WOCCU Spanish Immersion Program early deadline Sunday
MADISON, Wis. (7/1/10)--The World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) Spanish Immersion Program is offering a discounted early bird registration rate. Credit union staff can save $100 by registering on or before Tuesday. The Spanish Immersion Program, which begins Oct. 2, is a total immersion experience that provides participants insight into the language and culture of the Hispanic market. This year’s program is in San Jose, Costa Rica, and includes four hours each day of Spanish language instruction at a certified language school, with an emphasis on business and financial terminology. Participants can apply what they learn from language classes while living with pre-screened Costa Rican host families. The host family will provide a private room and all meals. Along with the experience of being a part of a Hispanic family, participants also will intern at a Costa Rican credit union. Participants can choose a one- or two-week session priced at $1,700 and $2,500, respectively. Prices are good through Tuesday. The program is one of the four qualifying steps in the International Credit Union Development Education training. For more information, use the links.
