Lodging and three meals per day
- Students will stay with Spanish families that have experience hosting foreign students. A double room (shared with another student) with a Spanish family is the standard type of lodging offered with this program. Students who wish to have their own rooms or to live in a student residence must expressly indicate this on their application form and must pay any extra fee the school may have.
- Special medical or other student needs will be communicated to the host families.
- Two weeks prior to the start of the course students will receive information from their Spanish host families.
- Lodging includes three meals daily, laundry and ironing once per week.
- Prices include lodging from the Sunday immediately prior to the start of the course until the Saturday immediately after the end of the course. If a student wants to arrive or leave on different dates, he or she should contact the coordinator of the program and pay a supplement for the additional days.
- Students who have serious difficulties adapting to their host families may request a change.
The program includes at least six supervised extracurricular activities designed for participating students. Two daytrips to nearby areas that are of cultural or historical interest will also be offered.
Activities and excursions may be cultural, institutional, or athletic in nature depending on the school.
Transport from and to the airport nearest the student’s host family or residence
Flight information should be provided on the enrollment form so that a representative designated by the school can meet the student at the airport on the designated date and take him or her to where the student will stay. Airport transfer will only be done on the arrival and departure dates indicated in the program. Students who have other plans should make arrangements with the school to check extra charges.

- Medical attention in case of accident or illness.
- Evacuation of the participant or repatriation of the cadaver in case of death

Insurance coverage begins once the student arrives at his or her destination in Spain and lasts for the duration of the course.
