Wouldn't it be exciting to perfect your Spanish skills learning from a professor who ran with the bulls at the Sanfermines festival in Pamplona, Spain, or another who completed the entire pilgrimage Camino de Santiago?
With Spanish being the second most common language spoken in the US and more than 400 million speaking Spanish world-wide, this major is a smart choice for students thinking about business, social services or education.
Some say traveling is the best way to learn a foreign language. Through travel you gain confidence in your conversational skills, explore interesting sights, learn about culture, and meet new friends. At Lycoming, even before you step foot in Spanish speaking America or overseas at our affiliates in Ecuador and Spain, we'll have you traveling through our coursework, international programming, and lively conversation tables with our native speakers.
For a list of Spanish courses, please see our Course Catalog.
Ecuador and Spain
Cuenca is Ecuador's third largest city and is known as the cultural capital! The landscape here is tough to beat. In addition to exploring the surroundings, there are two universities, museums, art galleries and even Indian Markets, which give you the chance to fully explore the culture like a local.
Madrid is home to the Salamanca district, which is a busy area filled with shopping, restaurants, bars, tapas bars and much more! Outside of this district, you’ll find just as many museums, theatres, cinemas and concerts. You’re literally in the middle of Spain, so you can take advantage of excursions to Toledo, Segovia and Avila.
