    The Intensive Spanish Summer Institute (ISSI) at Lake Tahoe Community College is a one-week Spanish immersion experience in beautiful South Lake Tahoe. This highly successful program has been recognized by the California Community College Board of Governors as an outstanding community college program. ISSI is for anyone interested in learning Spanish, from high school age and above. You will learn the Spanish language and culture with many native Spanish-speaking instructors through 16 levels of language instruction, from Low-Beginning through High-Superior, and a wide variety of cultural Break-Out sessions. Attend classes on grammar, cooking, history, dance, travel, conversation, literature and more, and earn up to 4 quarter units of credit in the process. Whether you are studying Spanish for your career, college, or life-long learning, this program will provide the experience to meet your goals. Best of all, it's affordable and very fun!
