"El Lago del Bosque," the Spanish Language Village, simulates a visit to another country. Participants are issued a passport, exchange currency and adopt a new name.

Hartman was immersed in the language and culture of another country through large and small learning groups, authentic foods, holiday celebrations, reenactments of historical events, songs, dances, crafts, games and more.
