Granada is one of the most ancient and diverse cities in Spain. Explore the narrow, cobblestoned streets of the former Muslim quarter, the Albaycin, wander the passageways of the Alhambra, or enter the white-washed caves of the Gypsies and experience the passion of a flamenco performance. Here you will study at the prestigious University of Granada’s Center of Modern Languages (the CLM), located in one of Granada's most historic neighborhoods, the Realejo. Walking to class you will pass through winding cobblestone streets and hidden plazas. Spanish classes are taught in two historic buildings dating to the 16th century. Spanish is the emphasis, but there are also a large number of other modern language courses taught here. This is the ideal program for students interested in Spanish immersion and living in Spain. Granada is the perfect location due to its unique culture, wonderful student vibe, and relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the academics, we include cultural activities on the weekdays, and excursions to different parts of the country on the weekends. Internships are available for those students who stay a semester or academic year. You will live with one of our carefully selected host families and our onsite director will be available for you 24/7.
