The Spanish Language and Literature Programs for High School Students in Quality-accredited Schools are organized by Eduespaña and sponsored by the Education Office of the Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C.
The goals of the Spanish Language Program and the Spanish Literature Program are to help U.S. high school students aged 15-19 improve their Spanish language skills and their knowledge of Spanish literature, respectively, in preparation for the exams. Canadian students of the same age, at an intermediate or advanced level of Spanish, are also welcome to participate. For the Spanish Literature Program, an advanced level of Spanish is required.
The program consists of 60 class hours over three weeks. Class size is limited to 12 students. Students practice taking AP exams. Active class participation is encouraged, so that all students can improve their oral communication skills.
- The Spanish Language Program for High School Students will take place June 15-July 5 and July 6-26; each course consists of sixty class hours over three weeks. Classes are complemented by at least six extracurricular activities and two daytrips. Full room and board with a Spanish host family is included.
Six participating Quality-accredited schools in five locations in Spain provide ample opportunities for students to discover Spain’s varied landscapes and diverse cultural heritage and traditions.
On the pre-enrollment form, students must list in order of preference four of the schools participating in this program.
- The Spanish Literature Program for High School Students will take place July 6-26. Each course consists of sixty class hours over a three-week period. Classes are complemented by at least six extracurricular activities and two daytrips. Full room and board with a Spanish host family is included.
The Spanish Literature Program is held only in Madrid.
For Both Programs:
Students can register individually or in groups accompanied by a teacher. The registration form of any student younger than eighteen must include written permission to participate from his or her legal guardian (no student younger than age 16 will be allowed to register independent of a group).
Students enrolling individually should do so online, and then submit the payment sheet with a non-refundable deposit of $ 200 by March 20, 2014.
After March 20, applications will be accepted on a space availability basis.
For group enrollment, the teacher in charge should contact Eduespaña by March 20, 2014 for instructions on how to enroll the group.
If there are 12 or more students in a group, a schedule can be tailor-made to meet their specific needs.
