“¡Viva España!” These are the words you will be saying as you explore the vibrant culture and rich history of Spain while becoming part of a family, attending school, and learning what it means to be Spanish!

Family is an important aspect of Spanish culture. It is common to spend time visiting extended family on the weekends and gathering to share a meal together. From tapas to paella, Spanish food offers something delicious for everyone to try! Schools in Spain emphasize intellectual curiosity, so your Spanish classmates will be excited to discuss current issues, trends, news, and politics with you. After school, you may find yourself going out with your new friends to the movies or a café. Sports are also very popular in Spain - professional tennis, soccer, and swimming all have enthusiastic fans.

Spain offers plenty of museums, monuments, parks, and unique architectural wonders. There are even some caves and archaeological sites that date back to the Stone Age! You'll be sure to enjoy flamenco dancing, and if you’re lucky, you may have the opportunity to attend La Tomatina, a huge festival involving a food fight with tomatoes in the streets!

Don't just take it from us - see for yourself all that the cultural mosaic of Spain has to offer.
