Overall Experience
I both improved my Spanish a lot and getting away from college in the US for a semester really gave me time to get to know myself. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Language improvement. A new sense of autonomy and ability to be independent - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Being in an apartment, I learned how to live on my own. It was worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained the ability to converse normally with native Spanish speakers, something I hadn't really been able to do before. I also learned a bit of "adulting" living on my own and basically fending for myself. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. I met Spanish friends and it absolutely opened my eyesight. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My main goal in studying abroad was to improve my Spanish language skills. Although it was hard to notice my progress at times, if I look back at my level of skill at the beginning of the program, I am proud of the steps I took towards fluency. This program is extremely conducive to that. - Pomona College View Entire Review

I learned a lot of Spanish. I lived on my own basically for the first time, so I now feel like I have practice in that. I experienced living in a foreign country and language, with all its challenges, surprises, highs and lows. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
August 07, 2017 It Was Unforgettable
My Spanish improved and I was able to get immersed in the culture. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My listening and writing skills definitely improved, as did my fluency when speaking. I appreciated the opportunity to live independently in a second language, but I just didn't feel the urge to integrate more with my peers. I didn't fall in love with Spain, and that's okay. I still love Spanish. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned about Spanish culture, lifestyle, and attitudes, and will take this new cultural awareness with me wherever I go. I gained unforgettable friendships and experiences, and found my time incredibly worthwhile. I also learned basic life skills, like cooking, cleaning, using transportation etc. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My experience abroad was worthwhile because I had other friends in my program and in Europe and because I learned a great deal about myself and what I want for my future, but not because of the university i was studying at or the academic courses I was taking. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

This experience was very worthwhile. There was a ton of exposure to local language and culture. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about living on my own because Middlebury College is a bubble and you don't have to deal with a lot of the things you normally deal with outside of school - Middlebury College View Entire Review
September 04, 2017 Life Changing!
It was totally worthwhile! I gained exposure to a new culture and different ways of doing things, which was extremely exciting. I also gained so much confidence. Finally, more than 10 year later, it's shaped so much of what I've done- living and working in Argentina and Uruguay for 5 years, walking Saint James' Way (definitely... - Middlebury College View Entire Review

About

Designed for students at an advanced level of Spanish, the program structure of the School in Spain gives students the opportunity to perfect their Spanish competency through guided language immersion and facilitated social and cultural integration.

Located in Andalucía, and with a population of 300,000, Córdoba is a modern Spanish city that blends several centuries of cross-cultural history. Students on the Middlebury program benefit from the unique cultural experience of southern Spain, with its multicultural legacy and history that stems from centuries of Muslim, Christian and Jewish coexistence.

As an historic site where Islam, Christianity, and Judaism coexisted peacefully, the city is home to several legendary buildings, including the world's third-largest mosque, la Mezquita, the Palace of the Jewish Kings, and the ruins of the old Roman temple. Today, Córdoba, is a bustling city with a cultural life that rivals Madrid. Its amazing and diverse restaurants, sidewalk cafes, active nightlife, and large student population all make for an ideal location to experience modern Spain.

The Universidad de Córdoba, Middlebury's host institution, has three campuses that house several different academic departments, with particular strengths in art history, psychology, history, religion, biology, and philology. Its central campus is located in the historic and picturesque heart of Córdoba, blending modern architecture with the ancient city walls.
