Did you know that Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world?! With over 400 million speakers and 21 countries that recognise it as an official language (plus the United Nations), it’s a fantastic language to have under your belt. Learn it on a WEP program to Spain!
Spain is much more than just its language though! It’s a historical hub blessed with a stack of sunshine, beautiful coastlines and lively residents (also churros). Spain is pretty famous for its architecture (Gaudi), artists (Picasso) and soccer superstars (too many to mention!).
Share in the hype and become a Spaniard in your own right on a WEP program!
On a WEP student exchange program, you could be placed anywhere in this diverse country, from the Atlantic coast to the Mediterranean, it’s all part of the adventure!
On a WEP study abroad program you attend a semi-private school (subsidised by the Government) and live with a homestay family (paid host family). We will submit your preferences in sports, hobbies, region(s) of placement and our partner organisation will recommend schools matching your preferences.
Here are the regions of Spain you could be choosing from:
Asturias: Home to colourful fishing villages on the Cantabric Coast.
Castile and Leon: Spain’s largest region, famous for asados (BBQ).
Cantabria: This little province boasts 220 of coastline and the Altamira Cave.
La Rioja: Religious architecture like churches and monasteries are famous here.
Andalucia: This is where flamenco originated!
Murcia: Secret beaches, tapas, fewer tourists. Life here is pretty spesh!
Castilla La Mancha: This province is a symbol of Spanish culture (Don Quixote!).
Extremadura: This area is famous for ham (yum!) and some pretty quirky festivals.
Madrid Province: Home to Madrid (duh!) but not only. You might be placed in the countryside surrounding this famous city!
Valencia: A city that combines epic historical and modern architecture (its also the home of the paella, yum)!
