Location & Culture

Click to Open

Seville has its origins in the trade routes controlled by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC. Romans, Goths, Muslims, and Christians established their capital here before it became the most important city in Southern Europe and gateway to the Americas in the 16th century. As the commercial hub of its region, the city preserves many traces of its past and traditions. With 700,000 residents, Seville offers a large variety of cultural activities that range from the Flamenco Biennial and the European Film Festival to alternative theater venues, bars with live music, beautiful streets and open spaces and, of course, one of the most respected bullrings in the world. Additionally, Seville’s neighborhoods have 160km of bike trails, making it one of the best cities in world for bikers.

Halls have common spaces, and students can opt to pay for meal plans, laundry, gym and pool services and more. Students should expect a 20- 40-minute commute, riding a rented bike or city bus. *Please note: the residence hall is NOT available for session III for which participants during this session must choose a homestay

The program details

This program weaves learning of Spanish language with history and culture, giving students a rich and full understanding of the region, as well as Spain’s place in Europe. Students can stay for one, two, or three four-week sessions.

CIEE Seville – Our home is a beautifully renovated palace, originally built in 1725. Close to the Royal Alcazar palace, it’s a 10-minute walk from the Universidad de Sevilla. At CIEE, students will find classrooms, a computer room, student services, and the Language Resource Center.

Language placement – Prior to departure for Seville, all students take a scheduled CIEE online placement exam. Results determine appropriate placement in language courses. Placement in many upper-level courses depends on a high score.

Courses are taught by highly qualified faculty and professionals who are experienced in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. All CIEE faculty are familiar with the U.S. academic system and culture.
