Gap Year in Spain

There's no better way to get to grips with Spanish than to spend time abroad, living the language. Our gap year program in Spain will help you gain a mastery of the language that you could not hope to achieve in your home country. It's challenging, and certainly not the easy option, but you'll find that with a whole year you can integrate into the country at your own pace. Take a gap year in Spain and you'll practice your language skills while you're out and about, socializing with friends, and going on trips around the country. A gap year program in Spain is a fabulous opportunity to broaden your horizons and to learn to speak Spanish!

Lots of choices to customize your gap year

By enrolling in a gap year program in Spain, you can choose how intensively you want to study in combination with travelling, an unpaid internship, or volunteerism. There's lots to see and do alongside your studies, so you can immerse yourself in Spanish culture for a true taste of Spain. Choose from a range of language programs on offer in Barcelona, Madrid, or Malaga, depending on your personal interests and what suits you best. Between classes, in the evenings and on weekends, take the time to explore your destination city and take various excursions. It's up to you whether you live in a student residence during your year in Spain, or stay with a local Spanish host family.
