Academic Overview

You will study at the prestigious University of Granada’s Center of Modern Languages (the CLM), located in one of Granada's most historic neighborhoods, the Realejo. Walking to class you will pass through winding cobblestone streets and hidden plazas. Spanish classes are taught in two historic buildings dating to the 16th century. Spanish is the emphasis, but there are also a large number of other modern language courses taught here. The majority of the students are international, especially in the summer; however there are also Spaniards who take modern language classes. We encourage you to sign up for an intercambio (or exchange partner) during your stay to provide opportunities outside of the classroom to practice Spanish.  For our Winter Break (January or J-term) programs and custom intensive Spanish programs students study at Instituto Mediterraneo Sol (IMSOL) which is also located in Granada's historic center. IMSOL attracts students from all over the world and its not uncommon to encounter several nationalities in the same class. The Sol Education Abroad Granada program is the ideal program for students interested in Spanish immersion and studying abroad in Spain. Granada is the perfect location due to its unique culture, wonderful student vibe, and relaxed atmosphere. ¡Olé!
