Learn Spanish This Summer!
If you're wondering what to do with your summer this year then ponder no further! The chance to come to Barcelona and learn Spanish by enrolling on one of the city's summer language programs constitutes the opportunity of a lifetime - a perfect chance to broaden your horizons away from your home environment, where you'll not only learn one of the world's most important languages but have a great time doing it!
Barcelona is the perfect place to enjoy a scholarly summer vacation, as you'll be able to mix classroom sessions learning Spanish with the city's vibrant culture, incredible nightlife and of course its multitude of beaches. No wonder Barcelona the number one choice for students coming to Spain to learn the language!
A browse on the web will reveal a number of organizations offering summer programs for college students, where intensive courses will get you speaking Spanish in a fraction of the time it would take to learn back home (especially as you will be able to practice your new language skills in every day situations around the city). What's more, American students should be able to get college credit at their schools back home for their studies in Barcelona. We've rounded up a top selection of summer Spanish programs below, with what to expect from each course.

I spent a semester in BCN and it was the best decision of my life!!! Apart from learning the language I met so many awesome people from around the world, enjoyed so many crazy fiestas and traveled around the whole of Spain. I really can't recommend spending a summer abroad enough... and Barcelona is the best city in the world!!!
