Immersion Day

Description:

Immersion Day takes place every year at Fairmont High School as an opportunity for area high school students to participate in a complete Spanish immersion experience.

The day begins with making new friends and chatting over breakfast. Then, the students get warmed up by dancing or doing Zumba, salsa aerobics. The students love the high energy dancing to begin the day. After playing a getting to know you game, the students break into groups and are each assigned a country. The groups are all led by native speakers who are excited to help the students learn Spanish.

Throughout the day, the students participate in a variety of activities including "El Frenesí Familiar", "El Juego Loco", "Las Estrellas del Cine", "¿Quién Quiere Hacerse Millonario?", "Te Toca A Ti" y "La Carrera Asombrosa." But, watch out! If any student is caught speaking English, they get sent to the dreaded Spanish jail where they must answer questions and conjugate verbs in order to leave and rejoin their groups!

After the activities, the students enjoy a delicious lunch and spend some time with their new friends speaking in Spanish.

Immersion day is a wonderful learning experience for all, and the students receive an up-to-date hand out including all college AP and placement test information for area universities. They also get to speak with area university professors who attend as group leaders.

***That's what education means - to be able to do what you've never done before.
