Spain


Study in Spain! Mi casa es tu casa…

Is a phrase that is frequently spoken by many people in Spain. It translates to ‘My house is your house’ and is a great indication of the famous Spanish hospitality. This could be a common phrase you hear while living with a volunteer Spanish host family as you study in Spain on your WEP student exchange program!

Spanish people are genuinely welcoming, cheerful, generous and lively. It is not uncommon for a Spanish person to go out of their way to help a lost foreigner, or include them in an activity, as it is important to them that visitors leave their country with a good impression!

This behaviour stems from one common national trait – pride. Being so comfortable welcoming foreigners to your country (and to your house), suggests the Spaniards have something special about their culture, which makes them proud. Could it be the magnificent Mediterranean climate so dissimilar to other European countries? Perhaps it’s the delectable cuisine, which varies greatly from region to region, but includes the finest jamon, fish and saffron paella, and addictively sweet churros for dessert.

Their fierce pride is also apparent in the national dance, flamenco, where men and women wear vibrant costumes and audibly stamp their feet in time to the music. In a matter of months you too could be taking authentic Flamenco lessons, living as a local Spaniard!

Convinced that Spain is the destination for you? If so, we are sure you will also develop a great sense of pride for the gregarious people and their flamboyant culture. So don’t stop reading! Check out the information below to find out a bit more about what life could be like as you study in Spain on your very own WEP student exchange program!
