Program overview:
During the month of July, participants will live in residence halls amongst Spanish students where they will enjoy three meals per day. Participants will take two courses (equivalent to 3 units each) of their choice. The Institute of Spanish Language and Culture offers small classes in particular, the language classes use a communicative approach. Individualized attention is available for the special needs of each student. There are visits to the main monuments in the city of Avila and day excursions to Alba de Tormes, Fontiveros, Salamanca, Segovia, and Toledo. Professors and guides accompany the students on all excursions and explain the historic and artistic details of greatest interest, including the Carmelite sites.
Location:
Designated as a World Heritage site, Avila is one of the most historic and beautiful cities in Spain. Its world famous walls stand guard over the centuries-old artistic and cultural heritage found inside. Walking along the narrow winding streets, one easily encounters vestiges from the past. In this unparalleled setting, the Universidad Catolica de Avila (UCAV) established the Institute of Spanish Language and Culture in 1999 to broaden the study of the Spanish language, culture, and civilization. The program is one of academic excellence taught by experienced teachers. The main classroom building of the Universidad Catolica de Avila sits just outside Avila with a splendid view of its medieval walls. In the distance are the Zapatero Mountains, part of the Sierra De Gredos range. The students also have access to good libraries, computer laboratories, the university cafe, and sports installations.
