Academics

Overview

In Salamanca, ISA-HS offers an intensive Spanish Language and Culture program at the University of Salamanca. Students attend classes in Spanish four hours daily, Monday through Friday. On the first day of class, students are administered a language level placement test by the university. Classes are taught by university professors and attended by ISA-HS students and other international students; schedules are confirmed upon language level placement. Tutoring services are available at the ISA office and must be requested at least 24 hours in advance. If necessary, class level changes may be made during the first few days of the academic program. Students must first inform the professor(s) and ISA resident director and staff of the desired change. Course descriptions are available below.
