Covid 19 - Update

LITA is currently accepting applications for summer 2021 and we encourage you to initiate an application here on our website or reach out to us directly with any questions. As we have all experienced, we are living through an extraordinary and strange time, with health and safety guidelines and medical information constantly evolving and changing. We remain in close contact with all our colleagues, friends, and host families in Spain, and we are optimistic that all of our programs will be able to run in summer of 2021. We understand that certain safety measures will be necessary and certain programming components may need to be reimagined or modified.

Our first priority is always to provide a safe and meaningful experience, both for our students and staff as well as the communities that we visit and the partners with whom we engage. We are proceeding with our programs and preparations under the premise that possible exposure to COVID-19 is currently a part of our lives wherever we go.

Please feel free to reach out directly to Jordan, LITA's director, with any questions or concerns. You can reach Jordan over email at

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.
