Close Update

September 1, 2021

While the COVID pandemic has certainly altered the landscape of international student travel and disrupted our communities in difficult and often emotional ways, it has also highlighted our collective need for authentic and meaningful human connection. We are very excited to resume normal operations this year! LITA will be offering a full slate of summer programs in 2022. We are currently accepting applications for summer 2022; however, new applicants should be aware that we anticipate fewer available spots than usual, given that many accepted students from the past two summers will be rolling over their matriculation to 2022. We encourage all interested students to consider applying early this fall! Feel free to reach out to Jordan Romm (LITA's director) either via email ( or simply begin an application and we will reach out to you.

Con mucho cariño,

La familia LITA

Bienvenido a LITA

LITA provides unique Spanish language immersion experiences for high school students with a true sense of adventure and a keen interest in language acquisition. All of our trips are held in Spain during the summer. Our incredible relationships with local families, educators, artists, and guides enable us to offer students a highly personalized and genuine language and cultural experience. Through small, intimate groups and personal attention throughout the entire trip process, LITA participants acquire an in-depth understanding of the Spanish language and the diverse nature of Spanish culture. Our goal is for all LITA students to return home with a sense of global citizenship that lasts a lifetime.

About LITA

The word "LITA" alludes to the philosophical foundation of our program: a Spanish word ending with the diminutive "ita" often denotes something small, personal, and is something or someone toward which one feels great affection. This informs all elements of our programs.

We are a rural-focused language immersion program providing motivated high school students a completely different approach to exploring the dynamic elements of the Spanish language and culture. We offer a comprehensive exploration of Spain, focusing on language study as it relates to art, food, music, family life, and discoveries off the beaten path.
