Advance your Spanish language skills while living in Spain's capital city

In this intensive six-week program, you'll immerse yourself in Spanish culture, significantly improve your language skills, and earn up to eight credits.

While taking one or two courses taught by Cornell faculty, you'll

  • Use Spanish in and outside of the classroom
  • Get to know and interact with native speakers
  • Participate in site visits to museums and venues of historical importance
  • Attend concerts and theater productions and experience life in a European nation

You'll live in the center of Madrid with a host family selected by the program and attend classes at the Instituto Internacional Americano.

This program can fulfill a language requirement or prepare you for early entry into a minor or major in Spanish at Cornell.
