I became more independent, and greatly improved my Spanish language skills, and my confidence in my skills. It was definitely the most worthwhile thing I have ever done. Allison D - Saginaw Valley State University View Entire Review
Studying in school in Spain, students are sure to gain knowledge of the Spanish language. To be even more immersed in the culture there are homestay options available in addition to residencia syle living. Seville, the capital of Spain's Andalusia region, is the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain.
A city alive with music, dance, and energy, Seville is bursting with passion and electricity at every turn. A wonderful mix of trademark Spanish vitality and a mellow Mediterranean vibe, Seville is sure to have a spice perfect for every traveler's taste. Athena provides field trips and activities that give students a deeper appreciation for this lively culture, such as a visit to the Flamenco museum, day trip to Zahara Beach, and excursions to Granada and Morocco!
