Put your Spanish to work in real-life situations. Earn academic credit, live with a Spanish family, and visit cultural and historical sites. Spend January 2014 in the beautiful city of Seville in southern Spain. Improve your language skills as you use them to immerse yourself in Spanish culture and history. Our objective is to offer students more intense exposure to the language and cultures of Spain, beyond the traditional classroom experience.
The Center for Cross-Cultural Studies in Seville is our home base for language instruction and home stays with Spanish families. Students enroll for credit in one of three courses, Intermediate Spanish II, Spanish Oral Expression and Culture, or Business Spanish. The combination of cultural immersion, classroom instruction, native interviews, and family home stays provides participants with a unique language learning experience.
Your January term in Seville offers you an unforgettable home stay experience, intensive language instruction at an accredited language and cultural institute, and a marvelous opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the rich legacy of the diverse influences that forged contemporary Spanish culture. Several walking tours and day trips to nearby points of interest (Ronda, Itálica, museums, Jewish Quarter, catedral, Alcázar) help round out your experience of the many influences that converge to shape modern Spain. Weekend excursions to Córdoba (Great Mosque/Jewish Quarter) and Granada (catedral, Alhambra, and Generalife gardens) further highlight and reveal the blending of Muslim, Jewish and Christian cultures, both past and present.
