Language + Culture, Fall 2017, Newsletter III


Fall semester is gone and students are back home. In our last newsletter, you can learn about student’s internship experiences and last field trips. We hope students now are better global citizens after their enriching cultural experience in Barcelona!

Street Art in Barcelona

Students at the CIEE course Urban Culture in Contemporary Barcelona had the opportunity to attend a street art tour around Barcelona. The tour showcases Barcelona’s historical neighborhoods of El Borne and the Gothic Quarter highlighting many of the classical, earlier examples of Barcelona street art found all over its walls with some remaining for years, and some even decades. Many students highlighted this field trip as their favorite one!

Some students made their final presentation about graffiti in Barcelona. Here it is an example:

Students at the Past and Present in Barcelona CIEE course got to visit a bomb shelter built by the locals during the Spanish Civil War. There they learned about when Barcelona was bombed by the Italian army who helped Franco’s troops in 1938, when around 1300 people died. Students learned about the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) and got to explore the bomb shelter where locals protected themselves from the bombs. Students commented: “I think the fieldtrips are helpful for understanding the concepts taught in class”.

Farewell party

Students had the opportunity to say goodbye to their program mates, CIEE staff and professors at the farewell party. They enjoyed the occasion and we wish them a very successful future.
