University of La Rioja (Spain)

The Foundation of the University of La Rioja presents the Summer Spanish Language and Culture Programs which will take place from 30th June to 25th July 2014.

The course consists of 80 hours lessons taking place in the morning plus different culture activities: guided tours around La Rioja, visits to wine cellars, regional cuisine, etc.

The following courses are programmed with the possibility of including other subjects/areas of interest if requested:

  • Spanish as a second language: addressed to students of all nationalities who want to learn Spanish or to improve their language level.
  • Spanish Literature and Culture (for advanced students): Spanish short story of the 20th century, Spanish Art of the 19th and 20th centuries

The University of La Rioja is located in Logroño (La Rioja). This region is world famous not only for its wines but also for being the birthplace of the oldest known written words of the Spanish Language. People from La Rioja are well-known for their open, cheerful and hospitable character. Logroño, the capital of this region, is a small city but gives its visitors the opportunity to participate in many cultural activities. It has been nominated as “the best Spanish town to live” according to the Merco City 2010 research and it is ranked within the best ten Spanish cities to study and enjoyment.

All these reasons create a great environment to learn Spanish and offer the students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the Spanish Culture. We attach a document with specific information about the summer program.
