Bienvenidos, Welcome to Barcelona!

Language and Culture Program students have already been in Barcelona for a month and they have already done a lot of activities! We held orientation; they participated in tours and excursions; visited the Guadí Park Güell with their Guardian Angels; attended the host institution Pompeu Fabra (UPF) Welcome session; and started their UPF and CIEE classes. Here there are some details:

Exploring Barcelona with Guardian Angels

 Guardian Angels (GA) are local students who help our students to get familiarized with the city, they accompany them, participate with them in cultural activities and incorporate them in the society.  LC students already shared a Tapas Night with their GA´s and toured the host institution Pompeu Fabra.

Biblioteca UPFHow to get immersed: soccer, castellers, cook and taste!

Students were able to choose between several day trips around Catalonia with the rest of Barcelona CIEE students. They have been also participating in several cultural activities to immerse with locals and to better understand cultural aspects such as a Picasso tour, a casteller practice, or soccer matches with Spanish students.
