Summer Session June May 16 - June 18, 2021

During the Summer we offer two sessions where attending one or both sessions will be a wonderful experience. Students will be able to take up to three classes (9 credits) from our extensive course list in Language, Literature, History and Geography, ....

This course is complemented with our immersion process with learning outside the classroom, creating a holistic language learning experience. Living with Spanish families allows for constant practice of Spanish and total interaction with the culture. We also organize individual language partners with Spanish students where students can put into practice, in a fun and dynamic way, what they have learned in class.

Experience the culture of everyday Spanish life as you live and interact with your host family, participate in cultural activities and trips to other cities in Spain.

Travel Europe on your own or with your friends.

Interact with Spanish students through our special programs and language partners.
