This fall or spring program for intermediate or advanced students offers intensive Spanish language, humanities, and social sciences at the Curso de Lengua y Cultura Españolas para Extranjeros (ELE) at the University of Oviedo. Morning language courses are attended by US and other international students, and the in-class learning is complemented by a series of experiential activities such as excursions, including overnight and day trips, guided local visits and other group activities. Students also have the opportunity to participate in optional community service placements with local schools and NGOs. A cross-cultural communications course, language partners, and home stays help to further engage students in the community and enhance linguistic and cultural immersion. Located in the northwest region of Spain called Asturias, Oviedo offers easy access to shopping, restaurants, the Camino de Santiago, beaches and hiking in the lushly forested mountains surrounding this beautiful area.
