Spanish Immersion in Oviedo

You will take your core language courses in Spanish (intermediate and advanced levels) through the Curso de Lengua y Cultura Españolas para Extranjeros (ELE) at the University of Oviedo. At ELE you will attend courses with US and other international students. A cross-cultural communications course, taught in English, is conducted by local faculty. 

ELE courses are held in the mornings, Monday-Friday, allowing you the opportunity to put your language skills to practical use in the community and enjoy the many leisure activities offered in the area.. This program offers full support and is preceded by an extensive orientation. In-class learning is complemented throughout the sessions by a series of experiential activities such as excursions, including overnight and day trips, guided local visits and other group activities which are included in the program fee. In addition, optional community service placements with local schools and NGOs, the cross-cultural communications course, language partners, and homestays help to further engage you in the community and enhance your linguistic and cultural immersion. Homestays in Oviedo are carefully selected to fit your needs.

GEO program fees cover tuition, housing and all meals, excursions, books and course materials, and on-site orientation. Insurance and a 24-hour emergency service are also included. For information on scholarship funding, please visit the Scholarships & Aid page on our website.
