Program Overview

Program Description:
Experience an immersion in Spanish language and culture in two of the most vibrant cities in Spain: Seville (2 weeks) and Salamanca (4 weeks). Seville was once the largest city in all of Spain, a key city of Islamic Al-Andalus and of medieval Castile, and later the primary port which connected Spain with its American colonies. Even today the culture and the language spoken in the city recall those connections. The Universidad de Salamanca was founded in the 13th century and holds a worldwide reputation in Spanish language teaching and Hispanic studies. The 40,000 student population, which includes local Spanish and European students, makes Salamanca a very young city devoted completely to students, with a wide offering of regular cultural activities (theater, concerts, art exhibitions, local celebrations) and a unique student life style.
