Summer Study Abroad Spain in La Coruña
Experience true Spanish immersion through our Summer Study Abroad Spain program! Accepting late Summer 2017 Applications until program is full!
Our Summer study abroad Spain program offers a unique opportunity to live in the beautiful beach town of A Coruña. You will be fully immersed in the Spanish language and culture living and interacting with Spanish speakers daily. You have the option to study Spanish for academic credit, complete an internship at a Spanish organization in your field of study, or do both during a 5 or 10 week stay! We recommend this program for students who want to improve their Spanish quickly while experiencing authentic Spain. This program is open to beginners through advanced Spanish speakers.
Why La Coruña? La Coruña is a breathtaking coastal city in the lush region of Galicia offering beautiful beaches, delicious tapas bars, fresh seafood, and lively nightlife! It’s also one of the best cities in Spain to learn Spanish as it allows for complete immersion in the Spanish language. Beyond our group, it’s very unlikely that you’ll run into other English speakers. In more popular Spanish destinations, there are many English speakers which can make learning Spanish more difficult. Of course, you may still easily visit Barcelona, Madrid and other popular destinations around Europe on a budget during your free weekends by flight, bus or train. If you’re looking for the best place to improve your Spanish while enjoying Spanish life on a student budget, La Coruña is the city to choose!
Choose to study, intern or do both over a 5 or 10 week stay.
