Simone's Summer Studies in Spain

As a student of Wilfred Laurier University, I have a wonderful opportunity to study in Spain in July 2020. I was exposed to the Spanish culture for the first time over a year ago and fell in love with the lifestyle and the people, it was then I decided to devote myself to studying the language.

My study abroad course is an intensive 1 month Spanish language and cultural immersion experience in Spain's vibrant university city of Salamanca.  In addition to improving my grammar, listening, and Spanish speaking skills, I will travel to over a dozen cities throughout Spain on guided tours to learn and experience Spanish culture, architecture, history and of course its delicious food! 

My fundraising goal is $4,500 which will help to cover the cost of airfare, accommodation, meals, ground transportation, tours and international student health insurance. Thanks so much for partnering with me on this exciting endeavor, every donation will make a difference. Muchas Gracias!
