Barcelona - Advanced Spanish Studies

Program Overview

Barcelona Parc Guell

Barcelona--una ciudad llena de cultura e historia, cuna y musa de escritores, artistas y pensadores que han influido notoriamente en lo que hoy se entiende como cultura española, y también en la cultura hispánica. Te invitamos a mejorar tus habilidades en las calles en las que Picasso, Vargas Llosa, García Márquez, Gaudí y Carlos Ruiz Zafon, entre muchos, se nutrieron de inspiración. Ciudad cosmopolita y eje literario y cultural que marcará tu experiencia en el extranjero con las múltiples experiencias que te esperan.

This is your chance to directly enroll in a local university and speak, write, and understand Spanish to the best of your ability. Maybe you'll even make some Spanish friends while you're at it. You will take an advanced language course and choose from IES Abroad courses, local university courses, and internship opportunities to fully experience all Barcelona has to offer. The strengths of the academic and cultural experiences offered through the IES Abroad Center are among its most distinguishing characteristics.
