Cuanto cuesto? No se... I think a lot... Besides making some rather amusing/embarrassing mis-translations and language mistakes, I achieved much more than I could have ever imagined during my time in Granada. I went on the trip expecting to learn Spanish, but I left it with an improved knowledge about everything... but reall... - Michigan State University View Entire Review

i got to see another country and the beautiful architecture - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
My language skills and ability to work around what I don't know has really improved. It was definitely worth the trip and has opened my eyes to a new way of living. - Winona State University View Entire Review
I learned that Communication is vital in all parts of the world whether you know the language or not. - University of Houston - Downtown View Entire Review
yes - Winona State University View Entire Review
I learned a lot of Spanish and a different way of life, it was overall a rewarding experience - University of Houston View Entire Review
Yes, I gained international perspective about the Spanish people of Granada that I will always remember and made me more aware of the culture that is tied to a single language. - University of Houston View Entire Review
Yes, because I have had a lot of job offers becomes now I'm considered "almost fluent". So this has helped me a great deal especially since jobs are scarce. - Morgan State University View Entire Review
I honed my cross-cultural communication and negotiation skills. - University of Houston View Entire Review
very. I see the world so differently. I loved it and now I wish to travel to more countries throughout my life to experience similar feelings but with different cultures. - San Diego State University View Entire Review

Past Review Phenomenal
i learned a lot about myself and about how to deal with situations when I am outside of my comfort zone. I learned how to be more independent and how to get comfortable somewhere new and foreign. - University of Houston View Entire Review
I gained a lot of knowledge about the Spanish language as well as more foreign travel experience. It was definitely worth the trip! - University of Texas - San Antonio View Entire Review
It was well worthwhile. I've learned that there is so much more to see, do and experience and that I have only just begun - Wagner College View Entire Review
I think that my experience was very worth while. I had wanted to go to Spain for the longest time but was afraid that my expectations would not be met, on the contrary they were actually superseded. It was a wonderful cultural and linguistic opportunity for me as well as to build international relationships. I would like to go b... - Colorado State University View Entire Review
I wouldn't change anything about my time in Spain. It gave me a new love for traveling and actually learning about the places I'm visiting, and I hope to be able to do the same in other countries in the future. - Texas A&M - College Station View Entire Review
I cannot even explain how much this trip impacted my cultural understandings. It completely burst my bubble of the United States. There is a whole planet out there and each place is different. No one place is better than the other. Their differences suite their culture. Some of my thoughts and experiences I cannot even put into ... - University of California - Irvine View Entire Review
absolutely - University of Houston - Clear Lake View Entire Review
Definitely. I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. I want to travel, live, work, spend much more time in Spain when I am older and more financially stable. - Pace University View Entire Review
Just because the United States is the "melting pot" does not mean one has seen the world just by being American. If there is a chance to see the world, by all means, take it! There are many ways to view the world. This experience has helped me open up my mind to new possibilities. The traditions are different, the schooling, the... - Texas A&M - College Station View Entire Review

About

Granada is one of the most ancient and diverse cities in Spain. Explore the narrow, cobblestoned streets of the former Muslim quarter, the Albaicin, 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. Classes are taught in two historic buildings dating to the 16th century. Classes are offered in English and Spanish and in a variety of disciplines. 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 homestays.
