August 25, 2017 Córdoba
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

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.
