Study Abroad in Spain
Language & Culture in Spain
|Your Journey Starts Here - May 9 – June 8 2019|
|About The Program|
La Furia Roja
Spain is best known for its art, dance, cuisine, and passionate people. With ASU’s faculty-led program to Spain, you’ll have a deep-immersion experience. You’ll study with a local, accredited language school with native speaker teachers during the day, with afternoons and evenings available for group activities, exploring the city, or free time to yourself. In addition to excursions in the afternoons around Madrid, you will also take weekend day trips to the medieval cities of Toledo and Avila & Segovia with your cohort, which are full of rich Spanish history!
You’ll stay with your familia anfitriona–host family–to be able to practice your language skills 24/7, a unique opportunity you won’t have in the U.S. Host families provide students with a ‘home away from home’ and many students often return to visit their host mothers, fathers, and siblings. You’ll have at least one meal per day with your family and they’ll serve as your first-hand guide to navigating Spanish culture (and language).
About The Course
Students will gain level-appropriate Spanish language skills as well as an understanding of Peninsular Spanish culture and customs. At the end of this course, students will be able to compare historical, social, political, geographical, intellectual, and aesthetic features that shape the traditional Hispanic society and contrast it with the students’ own cultures.
This course is designed to help students understand and discuss Spain’s cultural lifestyle through topics such as: restaurants, architecture, museums, immigration, and so on. The main goals of this course are to build students’ oral proficiency while increasing their awareness and understanding of Spanish culture. We will visit parks, plazas, cathedrals, museums, tapas restaurants, etc. to bring classroom learning into the real world around you.
