SPANISH STUDIES IN SPAIN (VALLADOLID)valladolid, spain building

This five-week academic program takes place in Valladolid, in the region of Castilla-León, for six credits of Spanish language study. The Spanish classes will concentrate on the four basic communication skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing Spanish. Students will also participate in five required meetings with “Conversation Partners” to practice Spanish with native speakers. You will be learning about Spain with day trips to Salamanca and Segovia and a long weekend to explore the sites of Madrid.
Students will receive a student ID from the Universidad de Valladolid (UVA) that allows them to have access to university facilities like libraries and the language lab. Students with their own laptops or smartphones will have access to free WIFI in university buildings. The new campus, Miguel Delibes, is the home of the UVA Language Center where language classes are held from 9:30 a.m. – 1:50 p.m. (with a break from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.). This campus is connected to the city-wide bus system.  Cost of commuting is not included in the program cost.
As an important part of the immersion process, participants will live with Spanish families who are requested to only speak Spanish with the students - usually one Belmont student per family in individual rooms. Students become members of the family during their stay. They must obey the house rules and treat their Spanish families with respect and courtesy. The families will take care of laundry and provide 3 meals each day.
