Camino de Santiago: "The Way"

The Camino de Santiago is a great way to see some of the beautiful countryside in the North of Spain. Last year, the movie "The Way" was released which features Martin Sheen making the trek which starts in St. Jean Pied de Port, France and follows the popular pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela.

Many of our students will make their way across the country after or prior to their Spanish Immersion program. Spanish Abroad has three locations where we offer programs that are very close to the route if not key cities along the way including San Sebastian, Pamplona, and Santiago de Compostela where you finish things off. Most students will also arrive in Madrid upon first entering the country, so this is another option to consider. There is a great forum on Facebook where you can learn a lot about the Camino de Santiago and talk with others about the experience. Here is a clip from the movie which revolves around a lot more than just a trek, but it is a great way to get a taste of what to expect for your own personal journey.

Slideshow Tour of Antigua, Guatemala

You can't truly experience Antigua and its great people  without visiting the beautiful colonial town first hand. However, we found this great slideshow on Youtube that gives you a great view of some of the most popular sites as well as some of the common activities you will find within the town. Antigua has been and is an ever growing popular location due to its very affordable Spanish programs and welcoming host families, and tranquil atmosphere.

If you are a parent or teen and would like an exclusive website specifically for our Teen Programs, then we have you covered. We now have full coverage of our Summer Spanish immersion programs that are offered  in Costa Rica, Mexico, and Spain at 

Alhambra - Granada Spain
We have done our best to provide a very customer friendly browsing experience that allows you to quickly find the information you need based on the location of interest. Perhaps you don't quite know where you or your teen (parents) wants to study, our new format allows you to quickly browse the information that is of interest to you for a quick comparison. Below is a glimpse at the different options in Spain. Here you can get a quick overview to compare each city and if you want to read more, simply click on the link provided at the bottom of the page.

Many students people ask us, "Where should I study". A lot of times, it is simply a process of elimination to see which location sparks your interest the most. In general our teen programs are similar in what they offer, however the sites and distinct living experience of a city can be drastically different from one location to the next. Of course if you already know where you want to study, we offer a quick drop down for city selection under each city. 

We take great strides to provide all parents and teens with full details on any program prior to the start of their Spanish immersion adventure. The new website is dedicated to those that have a very specific time in which to study and need to prepare what is typically a first time experience. Things are starting to fill up, but we still have space in all of our teen programs, it is not too late to start researching now and getting things lined up at:
