Students’ Accounts of Cultural and Language Immersion in France, Spain, and Costa Rica

This summer marks the return (after two years) of Roxbury Latin’s long-standing—and often transformative—cultural immersion programs. Shortly after final exams end and the school celebrates its newest graduates, dozens of RL students and their faculty chaperones fly to countries abroad to experience life, language, and learning in other parts of the world. This summer, students again traveled to Caen, France, and to Cádiz, Spain, for month-long visits, which involve homestays with local families and academic work in their elected modern language. This June, eleven RL boys also traveled to Costa Rica for two weeks, where they learned and enjoyed much about local people and culture, food and language, industry and natural landscape.
