Cultural Information

Population: 710,000

Region: Andalucía

Currency: Euro

Famous for: Moorish palaces, Catedral de Sevilla, Flamenco, Bull fighting

Andalucía’s capital is a beautiful and ancient city on the banks of the Guadalquivir River. Its temperate climate and rich cultural life embodies the spirit of traditional southern Spanish culture, from flamenco to bullfighting, to winding ancient cobblestone streets.

Spanish Daily Routine:

Breakfast/Desayuno is not a major meal, consisting of small amount of food and is generally eaten early in the morning.

Lunch/Almuerzo is the biggest and most important meal of the day and is generally eaten between 2:00 and 4:00PM.

Dinner/Cena is a small meal, although more substantial than breakfast and is generally served between 9:00 and 10:00 PM.

Siesta is a time to rest. It starts around 1:30 PM when all the shops begin to close, and lasts until 5:00 PM. Almost all shops are closed during siesta while Spaniards may sleep or watch TV, leaving you no choice but to also relax.

Traditional Spanish Dishes:

Paella is a rice dish commonly mixed with a variation of seafood, meat, vegetables, and beans.

Tortilla is a dense omelet full of fried potatoes (sometimes onions or another vegetable as well).

Jamón Serrano is a salted, cured ham that is sliced thin and is typically served either on its own or in a bocadillo (sandwich).

Vegetarians/Vegans:

Spanish culture is not particularly vegetarian/vegan friendly due to the importance of ham and other pork products in their diet. While the salads may not be filling, Spain offers delicious breads, cheeses, and vegetables dishes.

How to Dress in Spain:

Most Spanish people dress up more than the average American. Young men wear jeans and t-shirts or soccer jerseys, but you’ll also see men wearing nice pants and shoes. Women generally wear very feminine clothing.

To fit in with your surroundings, avoid wearing grubby jeans, sweatshirts, and sneakers. Nice, fitted clothing is what most people wear.

Life Outside the Classroom:

Spanish people tend to be very friendly and open. However, you will need to make an effort to introduce yourself. Some of the best ways to do so are by signing up for a local speaking partner, attending Spanish Studies cultural activities, or by going to the places Spanish students hang out.

Spanish Studies Abroad wants you to have fun while studying abroad; however, you are expected to meet all of your academic responsibilities. Spanish nightlife is probably unlike the social scene you have experienced in the U.S. The Spanish often plan to go out at midnight or later, which is just the start of the evening. Many friends you meet will stay out until six or seven in the morning, then go straight to breakfast, and rest during siesta.

Excursions

Spanish Studies programs feature all-inclusive study visits with accommodations, meals, entrance fees and expert professors and guides. Site visit destinations vary according to program.

Local study visits may include:

  • Museo de Bellas Artes, a fine arts museum converted from a 15th-century convent
  • Archivo de Indias, home to centuries of historical documents that chronicle Spain's role in the Americas
  • Itálica, a vestige of the Roman Empire in Southern Spain
  • Seville's principal monuments, such as the catedral and the Alcázar, a 10th-century Moorish Palace
  • Art exhibits, concerts and evenings at the theater

Day and Overnight* Excursions may include:

  • Roman, Muslim, and Jewish monuments in Córdoba, Mérida & Cáceres
  • The monastary of La Rábida, where Columbus planned his first voyage to the Americas
  • The great Hispano-Muslim monuments of Granada at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains

*There are no overnight excursions in any of the short term programs.

Additionally, Spanish Studies organizes Optional Leisure Activities (OLA) and cultural events such as bullfights at the Real Maestranza, performances at the Teatro de la Maestranza, and weekend trips. You can see the Center's Activities Calendars by semester of both included and optional activities.

Housing Information

Homestay

Your Spanish home or student residence will be the focal point of your social experience– where you will sleep, eat, study, and relax. A homestay gives you a unique insight into Spanish culture by allowing you to become part of a Spanish family.

Your homestay includes full room and board as well as laundry and the cleaning of your room. Special dietary or housing accommodations may be made, but may require an additional fee. To ensure that your home will provide a warm and tranquil atmosphere, one conducive to learning, Spanish Studies Abroad staff discusses norms and policies with hosts and regularly inspects the homes.
