About the City

About The City

Capital of Andalusia, Seville was one of the last footholds of the Moorish empire that ruled the Iberian Peninsula. It is home to the ingenious Barber of Seville and the tempestuous Carmen. The great Renaissance painters Velázquez and Murillo were born here, and Ferdinand and Isabel ruled Spain from the Alcazar Palace. Though the city preserves its past, modern Seville is the commercial hub of Andalusia. For a city of fewer than 800,000, Seville offers amazing cultural activities, from flamenco to classical, pop, and jazz concert.

Espero que cuando vengas a Sevilla, empieces a desenvolverte por esta ciudad milenaria con la misma facilidad con la que lo hicieron los pueblos de la antigüedad: los tartessos, los romanos en su larga estancia aquí, y los musulmanes y cristianos que pelearon por esta tierra como si de su propia casa se tratara.

Where You'll Study

Where You'll Study

study abroad in Spain

The CIEE Study Center is located in a beautifully renovated Sevillano palace built in 1725. It is centrally located close to the Puerta de la Carne, and a 10-minute walk from the main Universidad de Sevilla building (Tabacalera). A computer room and CIEE student services and administration are housed here. In addition, CIEE professors have offices in the center, so that students may speak with them privately about issues related to their progress in class.

Close
Housing & Meals

Housing & Meals

Housing, 3 meals per day, internet and weekly laundry/cleaning are included for study abroad students whether living in a homestay or a student residence hall. In homestays, all students are housed individually, although students may request to be placed with another student -each with their own room. In the residence hall, students are usually housed in doubles with a private bathroom. The vast majority of students opt to live in a homestay, which represents both a great opportunity to practice and improve language skills, as well as feel a part of the local culture. Living in student residence hall presents both unique opportunities as well as challenges as “communal living” is not for everybody and during the summer many of the local university students are taking exams or depart for summer vacation. Consequently, CIEE organizes a series of cultural and linguistic activities with local university student for ALL summer session participants.

Orientations

Orientations

The mandatory three-day orientation session, conducted in Seville at the beginning of the program, introduces you to the country, culture, and academic program, as well as provides practical information about living in Spain. It includes both structured activities and independent sightseeing. Ongoing support is provided by CIEE staff on an individual and group basis throughout the study abroad program.

Academics

Academics

Academic Program

The Language and Culture summer study abroad program focuses on two interwoven areas—Spanish language and Spanish culture and history. Special emphasis is placed on Andalusia and Seville within a European context.

Online Placement Exam

Prior to departure for Seville, all students are required to take a CIEE online placement exam during the scheduled exam period in mid-April. The purpose of this exam is to determine the student’s level of Spanish, ensuring that he or she is placed in the appropriate language courses. Students should take this exam seriously, as placement in many upper level courses depends upon a high online placement exam score.

Academic Culture

Students may participate in one four-week session beginning in late May, one four-week session beginning in mid/late June, or one four-week session beginning in mid/late July, or any combination thereof. Students may stay for one, two, or three sessions.

All courses meet daily, Monday through Friday, for two and a half hours. Additional cultural activities may be scheduled in the afternoon. The academic calendar includes dates for obligatory trips scheduled out of Seville. These hands-on learning experiences contribute greatly to the student’s experience abroad. Instruction is interactive and dynamic. Many lectures take place in situ, so that the student can feel a part of the fascinating culture they are studying.

While extracurricular activities and personal travel contribute greatly to the student’s overall European experience, attendance is mandatory for both classes and required events. Early departure for, or late return from, personal trips on weekends is not permitted. Any extended travel should take place prior to the start of the program or upon completion of the program.

Nature of Classes

Participants take classes with other CIEE study abroad students only.

CIEE Community Language Commitment

As students gain proficiency in Spanish, resident staff encourage them to use their language skills in everyday settings. This fosters a learning community that contributes to both Spanish language proficiency and understanding of Spanish society.

Grading System

Students are normally graded on a final examination; language courses normally have quizzes and at least two examinations.

Attendance is mandatory and unexcused absences are reflected in a participant’s final grade. Class participation is essential in most courses; some courses require students to complete special individual projects and present the project to the class at the end of the session.

Language of Instruction

English
Spanish

Faculty

Courses are taught by highly qualified faculty and professionals from the field of teaching Spanish as a foreign language. All CIEE faculty are familiar with the U.S. academic system and culture. Many have studied in the U.S. Teaching methods vary from teacher to teacher, exposing students to benefit of different styles.
