Program Overview

Program Description:

RAMP UP YOUR SPANISH LANGUAGE SKILLS WHILE VISITING PALACES AND CASTLES AND KICKING BACK ON ISLAND BEACHES.

Discover Roman ruins, a Moorish casbah and underwater caves. Go on a scavenger hunt in a 14th-century Medieval castle. Kayak, snorkel or sail in the clean blue waters of the bay. Whether on land or at sea, every day you’ll be immersed in the unique Mallorcan culture and put your Spanish conversational skills to the test. While mornings are spent in language classes at a local university, afternoons are for museum trips, intercultural activities and outdoor exploration.

In the capital of Palma you’ll live like local, sharing authentic meals with your host family and learning first-hand about island traditions. During your first three weeks, you’ll live in a homestay and take language and culture classes at a university building downtown. For your last week you’ll stay in a camp with friends at the Albergue La Victoria summer camp.

From day one you’ll dive right into the culture, through group activities with peers:  Cook and eat traditional Mallorcan recipes with a Spanish chef, while learning about the Mediterranean diet. Try a range of tapas, from traditional pan-fried calamari to fresh sushi, at the Central Market. Tour a local cookie factory and sample the goods. Go out for amazing handmade ice cream (try the traditional almond flavor!) or an ensaïmada, Majorca’s most popular pastry, in the city’s oldest chocolatería. Meander through the farmer’s market where merchants sell fruits and vegetables alongside livestock animals, clothes and shoes, and buckets of snails!
