With a multitude of tours, excursions and activities available, you will truly experience life on the Mediterranean!
Learn multiple Romance languages - "Romance" of course referring to languages of Roman origin, of which both modern Italian and Spanish are. In Barcelona, you can also pick up some Catalan, another Romance language spoken specifically in the region of which Barcelona is a part. And if you have French, bring that too! Apply some of that Romance language's foundation on your Italian and Spanish learning, or use it around town instead of English for some practice!
Beautiful architecture, rich history and great climates - Rome and Barcelona's history extends back millennia, which is apparent as you see Roman ruins, gothic cathedrals, and modern buildings within a couple minutes' walk. Both cities are considered commercial, cultural and historic capitals of the Mediterranean. And you can't beat the weather, even during the summer, as both cities' climates are regulated by the Mediterranean, with plenty of sun and relatively low humidity.
Academic variety in English - If languages are not your forte, spend the summer taking courses in a variety of academic areas to knock out elective/general education requirements or to get ahead in your major or minor. Choose from business, humanities, social sciences, and many other topics, many with a local focus, taught in English.
