Spanish Language and Culture Summer Schools (A1 & A2 Levels)

Course presentation

The UCV Spanish Language and Culture Summer School offers international students a unique opportunity to inmerse into the Spanish language and culture in the Mediterranean city of Valencia. The UCV offers two courses: A1 level and A2 level, giving students the opportunity to enroll to either one or both of them, as they are consecutives and complementary to each other.

Besides developing a strong foundation in Spanish at the A1 & A2 levels with our experienced professors at our Language Institute, students will explore through workshops and lectures, Spain’s rich heritage and culture, offering an enriching experience beyond language acquisition.

Students will also be able to enrich their experience through cultural visits to explore Valencia’s multicultural legacy, weaving together past and present, uncovering the most important historic sites of the city, passing through Roman period, the Visigoths, the Muslim period, the Renaissance.. while immersing in the modern dynamism of the city.

Join us for an unforgettable journey where language meets culture, and classrooms extend beyond walls!
