Study Abroad & Spanish Immersion in Granada, Spain
Granada is one of the most ancient and diverse cities in Spain. Explore the narrow, cobblestoned streets of the former Muslim quarter, the Albaycin, wander the passageways of the Alhambra, or enter the white-washed caves of the Gypsies and experience the passion of a flamenco performance. Study abroad with Sol Abroad in Granada for the experience of a lifetime.
You will study at the prestigious University of Granada’s Center of Modern Languages (the CLM), located in one of Granada's most historic neighborhoods, the Realejo. Walking to class you will pass through winding cobblestone streets and hidden plazas. Spanish classes are taught in two historic buildings dating to the 16th century. Spanish is the emphasis, but there are also a large number of other modern language courses taught here. The majority of the students are international, especially in the summer; however there are also a significant number of Spaniards. We encourage you to sign up for an intercambio (or exchange partner) during your stay to provide opportunities outside of the classroom to practice Spanish. This is the ideal program for students interested in Spanish immersion and living in Spain. Granada is the perfect location due to its unique culture, wonderful student vibe, and relaxed atmosphere.
I absolutely ADORED all of my teachers. They were all so willing to help me with everything and willing to meet me outside of the classroom on topics that I was confused with. The greatest benefits were being able to experience Spanish culture first ...
All Sol Abroad programs include cultural activities that are done during the weekday afternoons. These activities are designed to accentuate the unique character of the country and make your stay the richest experience possible. You will receive a calendar listing the scheduled cultural activities one month prior to the start of your program. Cultural activities include activities such as horseback riding, dance classes, and cultural tours of the area. Read below for more details:
Volunteer and community service work while abroad is an excellent way to give back to the community and develop a deeper cultural understanding of the program location. Whether you teach English to local elementary school students, assist in a grassroots community service program, or just dedicate time to a food shelter, you will not only better your Spanish, but also make lifelong friends along the way!
Our normal structure is that we include one volunteer activity per program session. This usually entails 4 to 5 hours dedicated to the activity that day. Each location is different as to what it has to offer for volunteer options and volunteer work is mainly done in our Latin American locations. Please review the volunteer section of the program country for more specifics. Upon request, we can provide you and your school with an official letter defining the projects and hours that you complete while abroad.
