Language Immersion Program
Speak, think, and live your new language 40+ hours a week with the Immersion Program!
The fastest and easiest way to learn a new language is to eat, sleep, and drink it—that is, fully immerse yourself in listening to and speaking the language all day long. BridgeLanguages’ Immersion Program in Denver is designed for those busy professionals and students who want to learn a foreign language as quickly as possible without leaving the US. Our most intensive program, Immersion provides eight hours of language training per day with a private instructor. You’ll go on excursions, attend cultural activities, and even have lunch with your teacher, speaking the foreign language in an array of real-life situations. Immersion training goes beyond the traditional language class to create an atmosphere that closely resembles being in a foreign country. Your program will include simulated business situations, role-play activities, interviews with native speakers, and extracurricular activities conducted in the new language. And it’s all conveniently available at our language school in Denver, CO!
Discuss current events using foreign language newspapers.
Gain insight into the culture, business practices, and society of your target country.
Simulate business meetings, participate in role-play situations, practice telephone conversations. You can even interview guests from the country where your target language is spoken, moderated by our instructors.
Eat lunch every day with a private instructor for a chance to use your new language outside of class.
Go on excursions with your teacher conducted in the foreign language—visit ethnic cafes, restaurants, and cultural centers, among other attractions.

Typical Immersion Day
Here’s a sample of a typical day of a BridgeLanguages Immersion Program:
|9:00 - 10:30||A quick review of what you learned the previous day and then role-play a real-life situation in the language you are learning, based on a scene from one of BridgeLanguages’ in-class videos.|
|10:30 - 12:00||Practice new vocabulary and verb tenses through conversation and entertaining exercises.|
|12:00 - 1:30||Time for lunch at a nearby restaurant with your instructor, all in the foreign language.|
|1:30 - 3:30||No, it’s not time for a nap! Grab a cup of coffee and watch a segment of the movie “Como Agua para Chocolate” (“Like Water for Chocolate”). Learn new vocabulary and discuss the cultural differences between the US and Mexico, as depicted in the film.|
|3:30 - 5:00||A review of new material learned this morning and from yesterday’s classes. As an alternative, you may elect to take a short excursion with your teacher to put what you have been learning into use in real-life situations.|
