The Instituto Espanol experiment is a concept based on the Immersion method of language instruction as practiced by a great percentage of the real world language schools that cater to language tourists. Our goal is to replicate to the extent virtually possible the vacation experience that a language traveler might enjoy.Proposed topics for this presentation are a brief history of the school and its founding, my personal background and my motivations for opening a virtual school, the wonderful surprises we have had in regard to student learning outcomes, and the sweet lessons we have learned from our disasters. I will also discuss what lies ahead for the Institute, our challenges and expectations, and our commitment to virtual language instruction in the future.Thank for this opportunity to talk about what I do about 16 hours a day. It will be an honor to present.
