Live and breathe Spanish in lovely Alicante. Students with two or more years of High School Spanish who participate in this 4-week CIEE Global Navigator program will receive 60 hours of Spanish language instruction and immerse themselves in the culture of this coastal city in Spain.

Set in lovely Alicante, this program offers a challenging alternative to our most motivated Spanish learners: open exclusively to students with two years of High School Spanish and above, this program requires that participants speak Spanish at all times. So get ready for a full immersion!

Spend four weeks improving your Spanish while exploring caves and medieval villages, visiting beaches and white-washed fishing villages, and learning to make ceramics or traditional Spanish meals. Build a lasting relationship with your local host family, while deepening your understanding of Spanish family structure. Get to know your Spanish peers through hiking, beach volleyball, or karaoke. Feast on paella, prawns, pomegranate ice cream, or churros with chocolate.

Practice your Spanish vocabulary out in the community during walks with your program leader, a U.S.-based Spanish teacher. At the end of the summer, you’ll leave Alicante with confidence in your ability to communicate proficiently in one of the world’s most widely spoken languages.
