SALAMANCA
 
Salamanca
 
 

Salamanca, with its 200,000 inhabitants, is large enough to offer the advantages of a real city but also keep the intimacy of a village. Home to one of the oldest universities in Europe, Salamanca remains a university city. As you roam through the streets, you can appreciate the many architectural styles which took root in Salamanca. Study Spanish in the heart of the historic city center, near the University of Salamanca and the famous, lively Plaza Mayor, known as the living room of the Salamantinos. Salamanca, nestled among mountains and lakes, is 2 hours from Madrid and 30 minutes from Portugal. Your classes take place in a restored 16th century monastery with a beautiful courtyard.

Our partner school is situated in a historical building, five minutes walk from the Plaza Mayor. It is equipped with the latest technology, twenty air-conditioned classrooms, a video and conference room, library and an information room with free internet access. There is also a spacious enclosed patio with a typical Castilian well where you can relax with a coffee and chat to friends during the breaks.

What People are Saying

“The host family was great! Everybody at the school is really sweet. I went to the sports club, and aerobics was great! Salamanca is beautiful.” Geeta, USA

“I just got back from my 16 week eduVacation in Salamanca. I had a great time and can’t imagine going to a better place. I enjoyed my host family tremendously. The classes were well taught. I also enjoyed meeting people and making friends from all over the world; it was definitely better than if I had gone to a school in Spain with a group of Americans. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity.” Tiffany, USA

Cultural & Recreational Activities

Tour the city, attend lectures (offered daily, Monday through Friday) to help better understand the Spanish way of life, and relax with indoor table games, Spanish language films, or at health club facilities. Guided excursions of Madrid, Toledo, Avila, Segovia, and La Alberca are offered on Saturdays or Sundays on a comfortable bus with a professional Spanish speaking guide; 2—3 day tours to Portugal, Andalucia, Galicia, etc. via bus, picnic excursions in the spring and summer where the teachers and students prepare both lunch and dinner, and spend a full day in the countryside; a dinner excursion to El Perdigon, a small village in the province of Zamora, 30 miles north of Salamanca. El Perdigon is famous for its bodegas which are located 45 ft. underground! Originally used as wine cellars, many have been converted into restaurants offering typical local foods.
