Seville, Spain will be the nexus of CAC’s Spain spring break program. Students will experience the Roman ruins of Itálica, visit the majestic, historic city of Córdoba located along the Guadalquivir River, and take in the rich culture of Seville while enjoying tapas and a flamenco dance show.

The Spanish immersion program is held annually each summer in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Students who partake in this experience will attend five hours of Spanish courses daily with native instructors at the Universal language school located in the heart of Cuernavaca. Daily activities and excursions will include visits to museums, cooking opportunities, Mexican history classes, and main plaza visits. Additionally, participants will stay with local families, offering intense language practice and a full cultural experience.
