SYA Summer Spain is a 5-week program for students who are dedicated to improving their language proficiency.
SYA Summer focuses on intensive language instruction and immersion in the culture, enabling you to make progress in the language while experiencing the sights and sounds of Zaragoza, Spain.
At SYA Summer in Spain, you'll make the leap from “learning Spanish” to experiencing Spain with all of your senses. Classes are held in the morning, and afternoons are designed to help you immerse yourself in the local language and culture.
Evenings and weekends are devoted to your host family experience. You will be carefully placed in a Spanish family who will become your guide to Zaragoza and the surrounding area.
The program is located in Zaragoza, a vibrant city situated midway between Madrid and Barcelona. While there will be day trips and a brief visit to Madrid during the first four weeks, the culmination of the program will be a trip through northeastern Spain.
- Rapidly improve your proficiency in Spanish language and expand your knowledge of the people and culture of Spain.
- Partake in local activities such as cooking, art and dance classes.
- Maximize your learning through a close relationship with your host family; let them “teach” you as you once “learned” your native tongue from your own family.
- Enjoy excursions to surrounding areas large and small, whether to hike in the Pyrenees or visit Barcelona.
