The University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez is located in the region Porta del Sol on the west side of the island. The region is characterized by its laid-back and relaxed atmosphere as well as its beautiful beaches and magical sunsets. It encompasses 17 municipalities (Quebradillas, Isabela, San Sebastián, Moca, Aguadilla, Aguada, Rincón, Añasco, Mayagüez, Las Marías, Maricao, Hormigueros, San Germán, Sábana Grande, Guánica, Lajas y Cabo Rojo).
Our program offers intensive Spanish courses in the summer and conversational Spanish courses in the regular semester. Courses are communicative and integrate the four language skills: listening, speaking, writing and reading. We offer small class sizes to our students, which results in more individual attention and increased participation. Class activities are interactive and integrate culture content. In class, students have the opportunity to develop and improve their language skills while also gaining a deeper and better appreciation of the Puerto Rican and Caribbean culture.
