El Centro

Travel to any Spanish-speaking country!

Through your hard work at El Centro, you can receive up to $650 toward a plane ticket to the Spanish-speaking country of your choice. Use your ticket for your spring break vacation, Winter Term or even a semester abroad. Your ticket, your choice!

Here’s what you’ve got to do:

You need to log 140 hours with El Centro in a span of two years. You can earn hours by coming to El Centro for the conversational classes. Increase your hours by getting help on your regular Spanish class assignments in the tutoring sessions. You could also attain your hours by attending the numerous cultural activities and participating in our community service options.

140 hours might sound like a lot, but once you sign up for some conversational classes, drop in for a movie or two and attend a cooking class you will be well on your way to receiving the plane ticket.

Check out the map below to find out about students who have used the plane ticket to travel to various Spanish speaking countries around the world.

Come see us in Carlton 114 for all of the activities we offer and start adding up your hours!
