Dr. Jaoquin Florido-Berrocal

I organize a Study Abroad to Seville with the goal of providing a genuine culture immersion for the students. They have the chance to live with Spanish families for a month; they also take two classes taught by native speakers, one on Spanish culture and another one on Advance Spanish conversation. Both of them include a diverse series of hands-on activities that the students have to perform outside of the classroom. This brings the learning of the culture and the language to a natural stage that is always difficult to replicate in the classroom. The study abroad also includes cultural activities, excursions and field trips, etc.
