Opportunity Description

The Cornell Global Program, CASA Granada offers an Intensive Spanish Language Studies (CILE) track that is exclusively language focused.

What is unique about this program?

This program is designed to immerse students fully in the Spanish language and is ideal for:

  • Students who have had no prior Spanish language instruction

  • Students who are at beginner or low-intermediate levels of Spanish language acquisition

Students take Spanish language courses in modules, progressing each month to another level of Spanish.  After one semester at the University of Granada's renowned Centro de Lenguas Modernas, students gain a significant command of the Spanish language.

What is unique about Granada?

Located in the southeast of Andalusia, at the foot of Sierra Nevada, Granada is a stunning city with a wealth of opportunities to keep students engaged. The city is a contrast between old and new, offering both rich historic sites and contemporary amenities. The Alhambra overlooking the city is one of marvels of Spain for its beauty and history. The area surrounding Granada also offers opportunities for activities beyond the city, whether biking or hiking with friends in the nearby hills to skiing at one of Spain’s best resorts or enjoying the tropical climate and beautiful beaches of the nearby Mediterranean Sea.
