Sevilla, Spain

The friendliness of the people of Southern Spain brings people from all over to the world to historic 3,000-year-old Sevilla. It is small, charming and walkable with a lot to do and see. After class you could take a walk to see sights such as the famous Cathedral of Saint Mary or visit the Flamenco Art Museum. It is also a university town, so there are many opportunities to meet and interact with Spanish students studying there. The language school has a small atmosphere and a hands-on staff, so each student gets the academic attention that they deserve. The facilities are brand new, and even have air conditioning, so itís a good escape from the warm climate of Sevilla. Another perk that past participants love is the rooftop terrace at the school that overlooks the city. Only 12% of students that attend our language school here are from North America, so exposure to different nationalities and cultures is an everyday thing throughout this program.

With options to take classes in both Sosua and Santo Domingo, the possibilities are endless. The director is very helpful and accommodating, and each location boasts a very good academic curriculum.

An added benefit of studying in the Dominican Republic is that you can switch between both campuses for classes. Each location has its own perks.
