The Western Illinois Spanish Experience-Spain (WISE-Spain) program provides a semester-long immersion in Spanish language and culture along with on-site guidance and mentoring by a Department of Foreign Language faculty member. In addition, you will take part in several excursions and tours of outstanding historical and cultural treasures of Spain led by Spanish-speaking professional guides. Homestay lodging gives you a greater understanding of Spanish culture and improves your Spanish proficiency.
The program is conducted in cooperation with the Colegio de España in Salamanca and Universitat Jaume I in Castellón. February and March are spent in Salamanca, site of the first university founded in Spain and a city that is traditionally college student-oriented. In April, the group moves to Castellón on the Mediterranean coast of Spain to experience a modern campus, on of the most technologically and academically advanced in Spain. Both locations and universities give you a wide perspective of the cultural variety of Spain and university life there.
