The core month-long program is centered in Madrid, Spain's cosmopolitan capital-- a city of rich cultural, artistic and architectural heritage. It consists of a full-range of curricular options for the student of Spanish language, culture, literature and film.

The Costa del Sol is a world renowned stretch of Spanish coastline. Historic Malaga, in Andalucia, is the gateway to the Costa del Sol.

Content courses also include History of Spain (in Spanish) and (in English) Spanish Art, Culture, Film, Music, Traditions and Folklore of Spain, and American Writers of Spain. The teaching staff in Madrid is made up almost entirely of professors from accredited American colleges and universities. A variety of optional features in Madrid include: arts, concerts, and a package of museum visits and day-out excursions as well as an extended excursion to Barcelona or Lisbon, Portugal. Spanish language courses taught by local Spanish educators in Salamanca or Torremolinos-Malaga start at Beginning Level I and include a variety of language courses and topics such as Hispanic literature and history.
