Open to ALL students and community members
We plan to depart the U.S. and head to the beautiful Mediterranean town of Alicante on the exquisite Spanish coastline called the Costa Blanca.
You will live, eat and socialize with Spanish host families; attend Spanish language courses at the University of Alicante taught by Spanish professors; and, in the afternoon, explore the city and the region with a tutor from The W in a "living" Spanish culture course. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive 6 hours credit from The W.
This trip promises to be a real educational and cultural treat. You will immerse yourself in the Spanish language, enjoy authentic Spanish cuisine, and experience the relaxed Spanish lifestyle living with and amongst Spaniards.
