Spain

Foreign Language in Spain

Program Overview

Students will study at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha in Toledo during Summer I session. The “Imperial City of Toledo,” 70 kilometers (40 miles) from Madrid, expresses the most complete and characteristic ensember of all that is genuinely Spanish. Located at the crossroad of civilizations, Toledo arose as the coveted prize of many cultures, including Christian, Jewish and Moorish. The accumulation of artistic, religious, and civic monuments speaks for a characteristic blending of styles ‐ Arab, Mudejar, Gothic and Renaissance ‐ and for sustained periods of coexistence ‐the co‐existence of people of all religions and ethnic heritages. From as early as the 13th century, the School of Translators has brought classical and oriental cultures within reach of the Western world. Synagogues, mosques, and the Cathedral of the Primate of Spain articulate Toledo’s identity as a national monument.
