NILI Experience




Contact Us



NILI invites both Undergraduate students and Business Professionals to experience a Spanish immersion program like no other. What makes the NILI experience better than other programs is our belief that to become truly proficient in a language you have to be immersed into that language. Come join us.


The NILI Undergrad Program invites traditional undergraduate students to participate in a semester-long Spanish immersion program in the heart of the Andes Mountains, in Quito, Ecuador.  Travel to the exotic Galapagos Islands.  Climb the towering Mount Chimborazo.  Visit the native Waorani Tribe in the heart of the Amazon Jungle.  Do all this while perfecting your Spanish and living among Ecuadorian, Peruvian, and Colombian Seminary students!


Prepare for a semester full of language study, ministry and travel.

NILI is a unique study abroad program in that living on campus allows students to be integrated into our seminary community, exposing them to multiple cultures and Spanish accents from many different countries. All students will have a Latin roommate who is pursuing ministry.


We also offer a “HomeStay” experience for students whose universities require it. Students will live with a family near the seminary campus.




Whether you are on a sabbatical, seeking professional or ministerial development, or taking your family abroad for an extended period, the NILI Professional Program offers Spanish immersion for families and non-traditional students alike!


Professional Immersion Program:

• Study and live on the Seminary Campus

• Intense course work - up to 4 hrs/day, 5 days/week

• Develop relationships

• Learn the culture

• Opportunity to travel

• Build on your relationship with Christ
