Spanish Language Programs

Improve your Spanish language skills while studying abroad in Argentina, Chile, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, or Spain.

Students looking to improve their Spanish language fluency may look for immersion programs where all credits are taught in Spanish with other language learners. Other programs in Spanish-speaking countries may offer courses in English for students with beginning or intermediate language skills. For maximum language learning opportunities, look for programs with homestays and other community engagement opportunities!
