With a high emphasis on close contact, trust, and personalized attention to students and families, we present this unique Summer Program in Spain, which is not like any other summer program. We will make sure you have and enjoy an experience of total immersion in the life, language and culture of Spain.
Our Summer program in Spain doesn't intend to offer a sightseeing trip, but rather an absolutely educational immersion experience that helps you to approach a lifestyle that is different to the one which you are used, in order for you to learn how to open up to other cultures, to communicate in another language and, in short, to offer you another part of the world that can enrich your personal life experience.
You not only will have the opportunity to get to know Spain, but also will feel immersed in the Spanish culture and life with plenty of Spanish lessons, educational activities, excursions and day trips, while sharing your time with a Spanish host family who will be delighted in sharing their home, customs, language and lifestyle with you.
All of our activities during your stay in Spain are focused on daily activities of Spanish life (cooking workshops, visits to a Spanish High School, friendly championships with local soccer and basketball teams, gastronomic outings around the city to local restaurants, flamenco dance workshops, bicycle rides, kayaking on the river) and other activities that involve an approach to Spanish culture and especially the culture of Seville.
With our Summer Program in Spain, day trips are fun, entertaining and relaxed. Some departures will be to emblematic cities, such as Cordoba, Ronda or Granada. But other trips will aim to show many little-known aspects of Spanish culture, yet that have a great local interest, such as spending a day at the beach, visiting small towns in the mountains, visiting ancient caves, unknown trails. Or even going up to the mountains where famous Spanish Serrano Ham is reared and produced.
Staying with a Spanish host family represents an essential part of this Summer Program, since spending time with them, living in their homes, and sharing their meals will offer you a real vision of the family lifestyle in Spain. These families will give you the opportunity to learn firsthand about the country you are visiting, its people, its culture and its lifestyle. Living day-to-day with them is the ideal way to fully immerse yourself in your new environment, allowing you to develop a very special bond which will last a lifetime.
