High School Study Abroad in Granada, Spain
!Bienvenidos a Granada! The Language Academy will return to Spain where high school students will have the opportunity to live immersed in the Spanish language and culture of Granada during a unique four-week summer study abroad experience.
Granada, frequently referred to as the Moorish jewel of Spain, is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the southern part of Andalusia. It is a vibrant city, featuring Moorish architecture and many Muslim influences, and is also considered to be one of the major intellectual centers of southern Spain. Granada was the last Muslim stronghold to be recaptured by the Christian monarchs in 1492 and has symbolic importance in the creation of modern Spain. Granada is also a popular destination for historians, artists, and tourists, as well as students studying abroad.
Academy students will enjoy the city’s rich history, architecture, and charm during four weeks of language immersion and cultural exploration. While living in Granada, students will visit the Alhambra, a Moorish citadel and palace and a UNESCO World Heritage location, which is regarded as one of the most inspiring architectural and historical sights in Spain.
