The semester came to its end for the Advanced Liberal Arts program. From their predeparture, through their orientation onsite, including the Spanish language immersion activity, until the start of the regular course all our students overcame their challenging selection and confronted a challenging coursework full of tutorials, language workshops and activities that promoted their cultural integration, among them the local visits or the overnight to Lisbon.
Different workshops, activities and visits took place in this last stage of the program: “cooking tapas”, Cathedral, Giralda, Alcázar, Plaza de España and Parque de Maria Luisa visits, “wine tasting”, concerts and music alive, kayak along the river, picnic with Spaniards or city tours included some of them.
The semester was closed with a farewell cruise along the river of Seville, the Guadalquivir river. ALA students enjoyed of wonderful views while they had the opportunity to say goodbye to their CIEE friends who belonged to different programs and to some CIEE staff.
Most of our ALA program students took their final exams and did their final presentations and papers to close their academic chapter. Students coursed classes of all kind of areas: from philology, to communication, going through Geography, History, philosophy, sciences, education, bussines, turism or rights.
Many of our ALA program students applied and got a tutor of content and just a few required some support for their Spanish.
As each semester, several opportunities have been offered to get students involved in the local community, such as volunteering and teaching and 5 of our ALA students took advantage of this experience.
We’d like to thank you for your continued support of the CIEE Advanced Liberal Arts program in Seville.
We wish you all a great summer time!
We’ll be back with more news in late September, at the start of the Fall 2018 semester.
Warm regards from Seville!
