I studied Spanish in the USA, Central America and Spain, and in my opinion Burgos is the best location for Spanish immersion.
Burgos was the capital of the Kingdom of Castile and the origin for Castilian Spanish.
The city is full of historic landmarks from the Roman Empire, Middle Ages and Renaissance.Read more reviews...

Internships are organized at various companies, NGOs and hospitals.
Students can enroll in a maximum of 18 credits per semester.
Most courses are the equivalent of 3 semester credits; courses with a laboratory are equivalent to 4 semester credits.
