Spain by Train is a 12 week program where you will get to tour all the different regions of Spain, in the most sustainable form of travel. You will learn Spanish by living with local Spanish people, cycling the Camino de Santiago, cookery workshops in the Basque Country, surfing in Asturias, history & arquitecture tours in Barcelona, art workshops in Madrid, organic agriculture in Valencia, flamenco music and dance in Andalusia and many more wonderful cultural experiences.
You will also take home a certificate of Spanish from the University of Salamanca (the oldest Hispanic University in the world), which will grant you 6 US College Credits. During the program you will acquire communication and self-reliance skills that will stand to you for the rest of your life. You will always be near our expert counsellors and local guides who will help you with everything you need in both English and Spanish. And let us not forget that Spain is not only the cradle of European culture but also one of the safest countries in the world. So we've got you covered. Before you travel to us, you will have the opportunity to attend a set of group meetings and individual interviews so you can ask all the questions you may have and if you would like to read more about the program. Check out our website to learn more. We look forward to meeting you!
