LLC Summer Study Program

Program Dates: May 27, 2023 - July 6, 2023

This program is meant to satisfy the academic needs of the students of Spanish, especially Spanish minors and majors, while providing a significant and direct experience of living and traveling in one of the most relevant Spanish speaking countries. It offers students the possibility to enroll in one conversation course and one Spanish elective in culture at the 3000 level. These courses, the excursions, the out-of-classroom cultural activities, and the lodging arrangements with selected Spanish families, are planned in order to develop a personal and meaningful experience of the Spanish culture and history, and to improve the students abilities to interact in Spanish with Spanish people. One of the most popular programs at ASU.
