Students spend three weeks at Estudio Sampere, a language institute with over 50 years of experience. Classes are taught in Spanish and students come from all over the world. Upon arrival in Salamanca, students will take a placement test to determine their course level. Classes meet in the morning and various activities are scheduled for the afternoons, including site-seeing, swimming, soccer, and other sports. Students go on day-long excursions on Saturdays. Sundays are free for study, rest, and exploring the city. Students who complete the program will earn half an elective academic credit.
Alberto and Isabel Sampere pioneered Spanish-language learning in the 1950s with the first Estudio Sampere language school in Madrid. Since then, the family has continued the tradition with its internationally accredited schools in Alicante, Salamanca, and Puerto de Santa María. The Juniors Program began nearly twenty years ago and is designed specifically for High School-aged students from all over the world.
Salamanca is situated in western Spain. The population is approximately 160,000. It is an old university town—the University of Salamanca is one of the oldest in Europe—and it is very safe and easy to get around on foot.
The cost is $3,980. A limited number of partial scholarships are available.
