This program is the ideal choice for students wishing to quickly expand their knowledge of the Spanish language and culture, become more fluent in conversation, develop critical thinking skills and writing abilities, improve their presentational abilities in Spanish, and enhance their ability to understand and interpret new cultures.   

The Winter Program offers a solid and engaging academic program intended to dramatically improve students' proficiency in written and oral Spanish; and a cultural immersion experience in which students genuinely enjoy learning language, history, and culture in Spain.

Cultural activities at ILCE Universidad de Navarra offer students a genuine immersion in Spanish culture. There will be weekly co-curricular activities to enrich cultural immersion in Spain and to better understand the culture in the context of coursework. Students will have the opportunity to visit many influential sites, learn about the country's unique history, and become immersed in Spanish culture.
