Summer program - reservation

With our Spanish immersion high school program in Seville, you and your students can enjoy an enriching, all-inclusive adventure abroad, featuring intensive Spanish classes, organized cultural activities, guided tours, customizable excursions, hassle-free housing, and more—all in one of the most beautiful, historic, and culturally vibrant cities in Spain! Here in Seville, you and your students be immersed in a seemingly endless sea of world-class attractions, cobblestone streets, outdoor cafes, delicious tapas, fragrant orange trees, friendly Spaniards, almost-constant sunshine, and an enchanting mixture of Moorish, Baroque, and Gothic architecture. 

 

In addition to our Spanish immersion classes, your middle or high school students will have a chance to soak up the Spanish language in a natural, authentic setting: not just the city of Seville itself, but also the comfortable, modern homes of our carefully-selected Spanish host families, one of which you can stay with as well, if you’d like. By living with a Spanish family, you and your students can practice your Spanish with actual Spaniards—all while sharing delicious homemade Spanish meals with them. Imagine having a great Spanish conversation over an equally great bowl of gazpacho. Now that’s what we call true Spanish immersion! 

 

We also offer hotel, hostel, and student residence accommodations as alternative housing options. This is a highly customizable program, so we can work with you to create package that is finely tailored to the specific needs of your group.

Here, they’ll be surrounded by a population of 690,000 friendly Spanish speakers, along with 2,200 years of Spanish history, 10 palaces, three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and numerous other attractions, all of which are surrounded by a scenic backdrop of cobblestone streets, charming old buildings, fragrant orange trees, lively plazas, and tranquil gardens.
