For students wanting to improve their Spanish language skills while exploring everything that makes Spain one of the top destinations in Europe, this perfectly paced 21-day program will leave you loving Spain as much as we do!
The beaches, the paella, the people, the language…What’s not to love about Spain in the summertime? On this extended version of our 14-day Spain Language trip, spend another full week soaking up the Spanish culture and language in this immersive program. Not only will you come to know this beautiful Mediterranean country like a local, but you’ll have three full weeks of intensive Spanish courses so you can learn to speak like one too! We invite you to join us in exploring several diverse regions of Spain, where you’ll have a unique learning experience both inside the classroom and with real-world interactions with Spaniards.
Begin in serene San Sebastián, the capital of the Basque Country, where you’ll get to try surfing at an international surfer’s paradise, go on our one-of-a-kind Tapas Tour through the Historical Quarter, and relax on Playa la Concha. We’ll also take a day trip to France! Next, relax for the weekend in regal Madrid, where you’ll get to stroll around the Puerta del Sol, pay homage to the legendary Real Madrid Football Club at the Bernabéu Stadium, and go for a rowboat ride in Retiro Park. From there, we’ll spend a week in fun and funky Barcelona. Amble down its palm-lined pedestrian boulevards, explore the twists and turns of the Gothic Quarter, take a bike tour through the city and of course go to see Camp Nou, home of FC Barcelona. Best of all, you’ll get to practice your Spanish with everyone you meet! You’ll spend the second weekend of your trip in vibrant Valencia, the original home of paella–even learn how to cook it for yourself! We’ll spend the final week in Alicante, one of Spain’s top vacation destinations, soaking up the sun and the Spanish culture as we do water sports, explore the quaint surrounding towns, and meet locals.
Our experienced bilingual staff will accompany the group at all times. After classes, take your newfound knowledge to the streets, where you will chitchat with shopkeepers, order your own food at restaurants, and participate in fun activities such as scavenger hunts to practice what you’ve learned at the academy. This program is perfect for high school students looking to gain a global perspective while gaining fluency in a foreign language. Learning another language is a must for every savvy traveler, so why not try one spoken by over 300 million people around the world? Come us with this summer for an enriching experience you’ll never forget!
