PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

First and foremost, this course is designed to equip students with intercultural skills and knowledge to be successful global citizens. This experience is designed to allow students to compare two educational systems, and to enhance their knowledge of the Spanish culture. Additionally, the course will expose students to famous cultural and historical sites in Madrid and Oviedo. Notably, the bulk of the course will take place in Oviedo, a city that typically is not visited by Americans. Therefore, BGSU students will be immersed in a unique and authentic Spanish experience.
 
The students will arrange their own international travel and will arrive in Madrid in the morning of January 4, 2019. There will be a mandatory orientation period in Madrid where students will be first introduced to Spanish culture. During our visit to Madrid, we will tour the city with stops at the Palacio Real de Madrid (Royal Palace) and the famous Museo del Prado (Prado Art Museum). We will also visit Toledo, “The City of Three Cultures,” where Jews, Christians, and Muslims once co-existed peacefully, producing a rich and varied mixture of architecture and foodways. From Madrid, we will travel north to Oviedo (Asturias), a city founded in the VIII century that is known for its medieval old town, its Gothic Cathedral, museums, excellent gastronomy, and a lively student population. In Oviedo, we will spend 4-5 hours per day at Colegio Internacional Meres (http://www.colegiomeres.com/), a premier educational facility in Asturias where BGSU students will observe, plan, and teach lessons to local students. In the afternoons, we will be visiting many of the intriguing sites in the region with emphasis in the local culinary offerings.
