Spanish Summer Institute
Washington University's Summer Language Institute in Spain is a dynamic, intensive program in Spanish language and culture offering full immersion for approximately 6 weeks in Madrid and other areas of Spain. It is designed to accelerate the language acquisition process of intermediate students in Spanish and to introduce them to the experience of life in this modern European country with its very unique history and traditions. This program is intended to meet the needs of students from all areas of the university, including those who aspire to study business, social sciences, or humanities eventually at advanced levels in a Spanish-speaking country (for example, WU's programs in Spain or Chile) and wish to achieve skill levels rapidly. It is also intended for students at intermediate levels of the language who wish to attain a functional proficiency level and first-hand experience with Hispanic culture but have major requirements that do not permit them to be absent from campus for a full academic semester or year (including particularly students from preprofessional and natural science disciplines). The program is exclusively for Washington University students.
The projected dates for the 2023 Spanish Language Institute are from May 14 to June 20, 2023.
Course of Study
New Curricular Structure for the Spanish SLI in Madrid:
1- SPA 302/3021 are the course requirement for the SLI Madrid program
2. Students can take two courses (6 WU credits) out of the three total courses offered (2 course options, A and B) at the SLI in Madrid:
Option A): SPA 303 (Madrid-version) and SPA 322; for students who have completed 302/3021 prior to the summer
Option B): SPA 311 and SPA 322; for students who have already completed SPA 303 prior to the summer.
For any questions of the curriculum and new course structure please directly contact Prof. Ignacio Infante, Director of the Spanish Summer Language Institute, firstname.lastname@example.org
The program will be based in the capital city of Madrid, with excursions to other historic cities, such as Toledo, Segovia, or Córdoba. Students will be free on long weekends to visit different regions of the country (Andalucía or Barcelona/the Mediterranean coast). Through this structure, students will be able to experience the very active cultural life--museums, theater, politics, music and dance concerts, and other offerings--of Spain's capital, and also to learn about its smaller towns, countryside, and regional differences first-hand.
In Madrid students live with local families selected by the Summer Language Institute, and carefully evaluated by previous Washington University participants.
The expected cost for the 2023 Spanish Summer Language Institute will be $6,800.
This total cost includes all the fees and registration for the two courses (6 WU CREDITS) students will take as part of the SLI Madrid, full room and board with a host family in Madrid for the entire duration of the program, and various excursions across Spain scheduled as part of the program. The program is also committed to providing various forms of financial assistance to accepted participants as possible.
