Experience

CINECU has been bringing students to Seville for nearly 20 years. We know and love this city. Whatever your interests are, we can help you get the most out of your time abroad.

History

Spanish culture is more than a thousand years old. In Seville, you can see just how real that past is, and how vibrant the present can be, as buildings and monuments from the Middle Ages and Renaissance stand next to the institutions of contemporary life.

Immersion

Live with a Spanish family and enjoy the Spanish diet while exploring the sites and culture of one of Spain’s most important cities. Dedicate yourself to learning one of the world’s most-used languages in a place where it is dynamic and growing.

What Students Say

I got to experience a world that was totally different from what I’m used to in the United States. Being able to travel around Europe was awesome because now I know that there is so much more of the world I need to see
I loved the city of Sevilla–it was big enough that there was always something going on yet small enough that it wasn’t overwhelming. Also it was a great environment to learn Spanish in because the people are very friendly and want to talk to you.
I feel it was an amazing experience, one of the best decisions of my life. Academically, I feel so much more comfortable using Spanish. I could definitely incorporate Spanish into my career. Personally, I feel more independent, confident and assertive. I really grew as a person. I learned how to be flexible and patient when dealing with people who are not like me. I learned decision making and problem solving skills. This program also opened my eyes to how people from other cultures see the world.
The best characteristic of my academic study abroad was living with a Spanish family. This forced me to constantly interact and think in Spanish, and I think was the number one contributing factor to my improving my Spanish and knowledge of Spanish culture.
