Spanish Heritage Language

Program Description:

The Spanish Heritage Language Program is intended for heritage speakers, who were raised in a home where Spanish was spoken.  This program was designed to improve the Spanish language skills of heritage speakers and for students to learn and experience their cultural heritage.  The Spanish Heritage program is housed at the Escuela de Idiomas in the lovely Mediterranean town of Nerja in southern Spain, close to historical cities such as Cordoba, Malaga, and Granada.  Students visit the prehistoric caves of Nerja and can tour the picturesque town of Frigiliana in the mountains near Nerja.  Students stay in a Moorish-Andalusia Residence Hall, located in the Old Quarter of the town and only minutes away from the school and beaches.  The Residence Hall has an attractive terrace and swimming pool where you can enjoy views of the Mediterranean and mountains.  An optional weekend trip to Morocco is offered during the first weekend. 
The Spanish Heritage Program offers $1,000 scholarships for native speakers of Spanish, regardless of their major.  No prerequisites required to enroll in the program.  Scholarships for the Spanish Heritage Program are part of a U.S. Department of Education grant to enhance the language skills of native speakers.
