Duke’s intensive language institute for elementary and intermediate level Spanish students takes place in Alicante, Spain. Alicante’s rich culture is attributable to the importance of its port throughout history. The picturesque Mediterranean architecture is complemented by Roman and Arabic influences. Today it is the eighth largest city in Spain and a popular area for tourism.
In addition to coursework and cultural workshops in Alicante, students will enjoy spending time on the beaches of the Costa Blanca, visiting Valencia for one day, and traveling on two long-weekend trips; possible locations for these trips include Madrid/Toldeo and Granada. This immersion experience will enrich the student’s linguistic and cultural knowledge while providing opportunities to improve spoken Spanish skills.
