SP200: Study Abroad in 2013 (Spain)

May 28/13


SP200*: Study Abroad takes students on an incredible journey and all-inclusive learning experience abroad. This year, SP200 was once again hosted by El Colegio de España in Salamanca, Spain, where WLU students immersed themselves in the Spanish language and culture. Under the direction of the Supervising Professor, Dr. John W. Schwieter, and the 2013 Program Assistant, Dr. Aline Ferreira, this four-week, intensive language and culture course complemented in-class instruction with many out-of-class activities abroad.

In addition to earning 1.0-credit of language, culture, and conversation, students visited over a dozen towns (including 12 UNESCO world heritage sites!) along with aqueducts, fairytale castles, cathedrals, walled cities, fortresses, traditional villages, world renown museums, beaches, flamenco show and lessons, Spanish banquets, and more--some students even used their free weekend to visit Portugal!

The all-inclusive program package provides students with: international airfare and all transportation abroad; course instruction; textbook and course materials; conversation and cultural activities; homestay in Salamanca with Spanish host families including meals, linens, and optional laundry service; all tour/museum admissions and hotel accommodations for 12 nights while touring throughout Spain.

The success of this initiative has once again surpassed everyone’s expectations. To see more about this great experience in addition to future destination plans, please visit:
