“The program has a full variety of comprehensive classes; Advanced Grammar, Culture and Civilization of all Spanish speaking countries and a variety of literature courses, just to name a few. All of the professors have an exceptional understanding of the material they teach. Being that this is a relatively small university they take the time to get to know each one of their students and they always go above and beyond to help the students learn. My experience in this program has been one of the best.”
"El programa tiene una variedad extensa de clases como gramática avanzada, civilización y cultura de los países hispano hablantes y diferentes cursos de literatura. Los profesores tienen un conocimiento excepcional de todas las materias que enseñan y como es una universidad relativamente pequeña, los maestros siempre se toman el tiempo de conocer y ayudar a los estudiantes en todo lo que puedan. Mi experiencia en este programa ha sido una de las mejores."

Araceli Madrid distinctly remembers how she was challenged by her Spanish courses at OLLU. Spanish is her native tongue and she thought the courses might prove easy. However, she improved both her written and verbal Spanish language skills during an advanced grammar course. A class on dialects of the Southwest taught her important cultural lessons, too.
"I learned a lot about myself and my Mexican American culture," Araceli said. "One of the many lessons I learned is that our dialect makes us unique from other Spanish-speaking people from other Latin American countries."
