GREETINGS FROM SEVILLA!

What a fantastic last two weeks, but time flies! And currently our students are now back in the US but before leaving our students had the chance to complete a very intense but fun program, full of activities and a very intersting class about Culture and Cuisine in Spain.

COOKING CLASS

One of those activities was the cooking class that we prepared for them: in groups students learned and cooked by themselves the famous and traditional "Tortilla Española" and "Salmorejo"

 GRANADA OVERNIGHT

Students traveled to Granada for an overnight trip during their second weekend of the program and enjoyed the amazing Alhambra, walked through the narrow streets of the Barrio del Albaicín and visited the Royal Chapel where they found the Catholic Kings tomb.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM SEVILLA!

The J-Term students arrived safely and they seem to be very enthusiastic about this new experience.

ORIENTATION

After arriving, students attended to sessions about academics, housing, safety and activities. Yesterday they had the opportunity of improving their Spanish with a "Survival Spanish Session" in which students learned some basics for their day-to-day life in the city and today they're visiting the Real Alcazar Palace, a 7th Century beautiful palace that's been among other things, the stage for some episodes of Game of Thrones.

REYES MAGOS - 3 WISE MEN

Students are enjoying during this week the tradition of the 3 Wise Men, (Los 3 Reyes Magos), with parades all over the city that end with the big parade tonight and the gifts giving to kids tomorrow

CORDOBA

And we'll be putting an end to the J-Term first week this Sunday in Cordoba where students are learning about this magical city in the center of Andalusia. This city was the heart of Al-Andalus and an example of cohabitating for Christians, Jews and Muslims.

Thank you very much for collaborating with us and please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.

Wishing you our best wishes for 2018!
