Spanish in the City: Barcelona, Spain
What better way to learn Spanish in Barcelona than exploring the city, learning about its history and daily life, and interacting with locals? If you are looking an immersion program, this course lets you learn the language while experiencing the city first-hand.
We all know that to fully master a language, the most effective way is to completely immerse into the city where that language is spoken, absorbing the environment, its people, and its customs. From that idea comes Spanish in The City, a new, dynamic way to learn Spanish where the objective of the course is not only to gain knowledge of the language, but to embody and experience life in Spanish in Barcelona.
