DESCRIPTION AUSTRIA

Applicants to the program should have completed one year of college Spanish or the equivalent and must show evidence of sufficient language background. This implies a minimum grade of C in Spanish 1402 or the equivalent. Only under very extraordinary circumstances can an exception be made to the requirement of one year of prior study of Spanish with an average grade of C. Tuition must be paid to Baylor University before enrollment in the program is considered complete. Deadline for tuition payment is the same as for regular summer sessions at the Waco campus. Those who are not students currently at Baylor University should contact the program director regarding application and admission policies to this program as set forth by the university.

The program mission is to combine Spanish learning with practical use of the language. Outside of the classroom, during one week of classes students will assist the only state-certified Evangelical Christian School in Spain with English classes for children for 15-20 hours. While in Denia, there will also be opportunities to attend Spanish-language church services.

While in Spain, there will be opportunities for cultural enrichment. The group flight will arrive in Madrid the morning of July 7, with departure to Denia scheduled for July 10. During this stay in Madrid, some time will be devoted to visiting different points of interest in the city. An excursion to Valencia (Spain’s third largest city) is planned for July 18. We also intend to make an extended trip to Barcelona July 24-27. Other travel destinations include Alicante and Granada. When traveling outside of Denia, costs such as admission prices and meals will correspond to personal expenses and should be planned for by each student when estimating the amount of money budgeted for personal needs.

APPPROCESS

An application and liability waiver are available from the program director. A completed application with a $300 deposit should be submitted by February 21 to indicate your intention to participate in the program. (Students who do not meet the deadline may be subject to airfare increase.) The application does not guarantee acceptance to the program, as each application will be given thorough consideration for the limited number of students that may be enrolled. The deposit is fully refundable if the application to the program is unable to be accepted or if the program is canceled by Baylor University. However, since prices for airfare, ground arrangements, and facilities are contingent upon the number of participants and the necessity of making arrangements in advance, subsequent cancellation by you after the deposit date and acceptance into the program will result in the forfeiture of the deposit. All deposits will be directly applied to down payments for airline tickets and room and board at Denia. The total amount of the airfare and travel expenses in Spain will be due at a later date, approximately the 1st of April.
