PROGRAM
 
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 afternoon cultural activities to become knowledgeable about Spanish culture and especially the area of Castile (Center of Spain). 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 the gym, libraries, and language lab.  Students with their own laptops 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 9:30AM – 1:50PM (with a break from 11:30 to 11:50). This campus is an easy 20-minute bus ride on Bus #8 from the Plaza Mayor in the city’s center. 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 Belmontarchway in valladolid spain 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.
