Since 1979, the KIIS Spain I summer program has offered students intermediate Spanish-language study in the charming city of Segovia. During this month-long program, students develop their language skills and immerse themselves in Spanish life. The program includes a homestay.
Only 60 miles north of Madrid, Segovia is an attractive provincial capital in the foothills of the Guadarrama mountains. The city retains the strong, traditional character of Old Castile and has a visible history that dates back to pre-Roman times-- Segovia's world-renowned castles, aqueducts, museums and beautiful environs provide ample evidence. Segovia also offers a weekly open-air market, picturesque plazas and cafes, a lively nightlife and frequent cultural events such as the weeklong Fiestas de San Juan y San Pedro at the end of June.
The pleasant early-summer weather and congeniality of the Spanish people lend a spirit of cordial hospitality to the city. Segovia's location also makes it ideal for individual and group excursions. In additionl to daily classes, the Spain I program includes an all-day orientation to Madrid and group excursions to world-heritage sites such as Toledo and Salamanca. On select weekends, students may travel independently in Spain and beyond.
Please note: Students wishing to participate in the Spain I program must have at least 12 hours and no more than 21 hours of college-level Spanish or the equivalent at time of departure. Students are expected to speak Spanish on excursions, at group meals and in all public places.
