Spanish Language & Culture
Summer A: May 9 - June 21, 2018

About the Program

Experience celebrations and festivals that provide an excellent opportunity in Valencia for you to witness Spanish character at its best. It is the perfect addition to the college experience for American students! Valencia is an ideal location for travel throughout the Mediterranean, Spain, and the rest of Europe. Equidistant from Barcelona and Madrid and a short ferry ride or plane trip from the Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca, and Formentera, Valencia's location leaves no shortage of convenient travel possibilities.

About the Location

Combining urban life and a relaxed, seaside atmosphere, Valencia is becoming one of the most popular destinations on the Mediterranean coast. Propelling this renaissance is the "City of Arts and Sciences," a museum complex and modern architectural masterpiece that adds to Valencia's deep, multicultural roots, cosmopolitan flavor, and warm climate to make it a true Mediterranean gem.


The program offers overnight and day excursions to Madrid, Toledo, Gandía, La Albufera, Museums (Bellas Artes, Falero, Lladro), Xativa, and more. There is also an optional excursion to Granada.


You and one other student will stay with a host family in Valencia. The host families are selected by ISA (International Studies Abroad). You may request to live alone for an extra charge. The homestay includes three meals a day, seven days a week and laundry once a week.

Improve your Intermediate Spanish Language Skills through an Immersion Experience in a Spanish-speaking Environment.

Integrate into Spanish Life through Daily Interaction with Spanish Families and Spanish University Students.

Immerse yourself in the Cultural and Artistic Life of Valencia
