Immersion Travel: Summer Camp in Puerto Rico

Posted by: | 15 Comments

It’s been two weeks since we arrived in Puerto Rico and the experience has already been much more than I expected.

Truth is sheRead More ...

Immersion Travel for 6 Months: Would I Do It Again?

Posted by: | 9 Comments

Editor’s note: We continue our week-long series about immersion travel. The following post was written by Amy Conroy — creator of habla, blah, blah — who spent six months in San Miguel de Allende with her three children and wrote all about their experiences for SpanglishBaby back in 2011-2012. She was also one of our guests on our SpanglishBaby LIVE Google+ Hangout on immersion travel. That is really my biggest worry – what if we never have another trip likeRead More ...
