Don't just learn Spanish
It is in the home that students can most benefit from the opportunity of living the language,
and learning the culture of the host country.
Come and study at the ICS from September to December. Spend your Autumn in Seville and earn up to 18 credits
This Saturday, September 30th will be our first day trip of the semester. We will visit El Puerto and the Beach of Bolonia. We will be departing at 8:45am.
This Friday, September 29th we will visit the ancient Roman city of Itálica. Students must meet at Plaza de Armas at 10:45am.
This evening Tuesday, September 26th, the ICS students will have their first session of the cooking class, where they will be making and enjoying a delicious Paella! Students should meet at the ICS at 7pm.
In the evening, students, professors and faculty are all invited to a reception in a nearby restaurant where many kinds of “tapas” are served. It is always a delightful and amusing evening of trying new foods and forging friendships.
Each day of Welcome Weekend has something new and exciting for you. In the morning, you are taken on two different walks downtown where you will be shown some of the most historic sights and monuments Seville has to offer. Friday ́s walk includes a quick stop for a typical Andalusian breakfast of “tostada con café” at a quaint coffee bar just off the main Avenue.
Saturday ́s walk includes a stop for a bite of always delicious “churros” with thick and rich hot chocolate. Each walk is approximately two hours long and you will enjoy not only the lively activity of downtown Seville, but will learn how to move about in your new city.
The ICS night activities are just as entertaining as the morning ones, if not more! You will meet us downtown to see the best Flamenco show in Seville at “El Museo del Baile Flamenco”. It is a night to remember of Flamenco singing, guitar-playing and absolutely mesmerizing dancing!
The next evening we will walk along the river over into the historic neighborhood of Triana and to the Arab Tea Salon of “Bagdad Café” where you will try exotic teas and see and even participate in an exclusive Arabic dancing show.
Sunday is Free Day! Students can advantage to sleep in, discover the city on their own, or make a day trip to any one of the many fascinating and beautiful towns nearby!
Students always love the “Night Walking Tour of Legends and Curiosities of Seville” on Monday night of Welcome Week. This 1 1/2 hour tour is given in English by an agency of local historians who love sharing their city’s secrets with out-of- towners!
On the last day of Welcome Week a whole new view of Seville is given during our Thursday evening cruise down the Guadalquivir river. With lots of food, beverages, and music on board private luxury boats, a relaxing and enjoyable time is guaranteed!
Every semester the ICS organizes these activities for new students and all activities are free of charge.
By the end of Welcome Week you will feel more than welcome in Seville. You will feel at home!
