Universidad Iberoamericana Puebla is a small Jesuit institution.
There are regular classes in session in May and June so Boston College students will have
the opportunity to mix with Mexican students.

The Course:  Spanish Conversation, Composition and Reading CCR I

Photo library

The course is equivalent to RL215 and the syllabus is designed by the coordinators of RL215 so that students will be prepared to continue with RL216 when they return to Boston College in September.  The course will improve Spanish proficiency by focusing on the skills necessary for narration and description in the context of modern Mexican society.  Students should have completed Intermediate or have received a 3 on the AP exam before enrolling in this course.   The course will meet in the mornings with excursions, films and activities in the afternoons designed
to integrate Boston College students into the life of the town.

Prepare to start the Hispanic Studies Minor or Major

The first course for the Hispanic studies minor/major is RL216.  Students who participate in CCR 1 in Puebla will be receive 3 enrichment credits and will be prepared to take RL216 in September.
