Program Description
Our Language immersion Program in Granada will foster students language and culture awareness in one of the most beautiful cities in the region of Andalusia in southern Spain. The Spanish immersion program allows students substantially improve their foreign language communication skills, as morning classroom instruction is followed by the exposure to Spanish through social and cultural activities outside of the classroom. Our immersion program is particularly helpful for the development of listening comprehension and intercultural communication skills. The University of Granada, founded in the 16th century, will host the winter program.

As part of the required SPAN208 Spanish Culture course the group typically takes several educational field trips to sites in and around Granada, such as the Alhambra, the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel, as well as day trips to medieval cities of Cordoba and Sevilla.

Accommodations: Students will stay in private Spanish homes in pairs. Bedding and linens are provided, as well as all three meals and laundry once a week.

The Program Fee also includes homestay with meals and laundry, airport transfer in Spain, all group excursions and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare or ground transportation to meet the group in Granada. The program officially begins when students arrive in Granada. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.
ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
