Program Description:
SPAN 3990 Spanish Immersion in Spain
Rafael Lamas 
Alahambra Distance
This month-long program based at University of Granada offers Spanish language and upper-level Spanish literature and culture courses. Students will receive instruction at their appropriate level of linguistic competence, and will attend a number of cultural visits and one-day trips in Andalusia, including Córdoba and Sevilla. Classes will meet four hours per day, five days a week for a total of 80 hours. The relevant course taken in Granada will be substituted for the correspondent level of Spanish language at Fordham. The program is based at the University of Granada. The city of Granada, a recognized World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is also the hometown of Federico García Lorca and a center of flamenco culture. The Alhambra Palace, the Sacromonte and Albacín neighborhoods, the Cathedral, and the numerous Baroque churches of the city are testimonies of a rich past, which continues to be alive through its vibrant university community.

How will you keep your study abroad experience alive back in the US and Fordham?
Because I am majoring in Spanish, I will continue to study Spanish language and culture throughout my years at Fordham. I will continue to improve my Spanish by reading and watching the news in Spanish as often as I can and by reading the Spanish novel that I purchased while in Granada. I also plan to stay in touch with my host family through e-mail. I hope that I will be able to find a way to continue using my knowledge of Spanish while working with Spanish-speaking people in the Bronx through some kind of service opportunity.
