About Spain Study Abroad


This program is a four-week intensive language and culture course. Students will be able to earn six credit hours towards their language requirement or apply the credits toward their major or minor in Spanish.

The courses are taught by native Spanish speakers and the institution we will be attending is very reputable. The name of the institute is Sampere and you can find out more by going to online. Sampere has been teaching intensive language courses for the Citadel for almost 30 years and we have been very pleased with the outcome.


Students will be in class four hours a day, four days a week. It is equivalent to two courses and they will have a break in between the two classes. Classes will be held either in he morning or the evening depending upon availability.


Students are housed with Spanish families and will receive breakfast, lunch and dinner. Laundry service is also provided for the students. Each student will have a roommate and will share a bathroom.


Students will experience the essence of Spain through a series of excursions. Some excursions will be local within Madrid to museums, palaces and other culturally important locations. We will also be visiting locations outside Madrid such as Toledo, Segovia and San Lorenzo El Escorial. The final week of the program we will be travelling throughout northern Spain and visiting many culturally rich locations as well.


Students will be departing from the US on June 1 in order to arrive in Madrid, Barajas Airport on June 2. Classes will begin on June 3. Students will return to the US on June 27. Specifics will be sent to each individual student via email once they are accepted into the program.
