High School Spanish Immersion & Culture in Spain

Spain has long been one of the “go to” European countries for study abroad and foreign language immersion opportunities. Images of white sand beaches, flamenco dancers, world-class cities, bull fighting, and tantalizing cuisine immediately come to mind when picturing this wonderful country. From the lush Pyrenees Mountains of the north to the romantic waters of the Mediterranean Sea in the south, Spain’s location on the Iberian Peninsula offers a diverse and well-rounded cultural, linguistic, and geographically-inspiring study abroad experience for high school students. Keeping safety, authenticity, and livability in mind
