Are Language Schools Education Loopholes?

Even a top end language school like ECELA (Español y Cultura en LatinoAmerica) is dirt-cheap compared to today's college tuitions, with cost per hour about $10 (even less if studying more than six weeks).  Compare that to $22/hour for in-state tuition and up to $75 at private schools.

Factor in the added benefits from ultra-small classes (our maximum class size is eight) and you can see why savvy undergrads find language schools an "educational loophole":  the value difference is astounding.

Financial savings is only one incentive for coming to South America.  Experiencing a new culture, making new friends from around the world, and of course, quickly learning the language, are all top reasons for a Spanish immersion trip.
