Take courses in Spain. Volunteer in Spain and Morocco.
The IPSL Segovia program is a great program for people interested in sustainable tourism, art, architecture, or Spanish language and culture. It is a great location to study Arabic language, culture and explore Moorish history. In Segovia, IPSL participants live amidst a 2,000 year-old Roman aqueduct, a castle, a 14th-century cathedral and more in this walkable, friendly Spanish city. Segovia is manageable in size, but also only thirty minutes from the metropolis of Madrid by high-speed rail. From Segovia, most regions of Spain can be reached within a few hours.
Segovia is - without doubt - one of the most beautiful cities on earth.
The city of Segovia and its Aqueduct are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Within the environment of the old city, there are buildings that commemorate the cultures of Segovia, including Sefardic Jews, Moors, Catholics, and Romans. Like anywhere, there is also unmet need within the community, and IPSL students perform volunteer service by teaching English to underserved children, helping unemployed people learn marketable skills, rescuing animals, assisting in an international studies office, or helping recent North African immigrants acclimate to life in Spain. Gaining valuable, international work experience by helping others and greatly improving one’s Spanish proficiency are some of the many rewards.
