AmeriSpan Study Abroad

We are almost at Thanksgiving and the holiday season! That means good food, friends & family and shopping for presents. This year, why not give someone (or yourself) an educational travel program?

Black Friday Special Alert! As so many people love to start shopping and making holiday plans on the day after Thanksgiving, we are offering two specials. If you book any Spain program for yourself or someone else for 3 weeks or longer we’ll take $250 off. Or book any other program, anywhere and we’ll take $100 off. This special is only valid if you book by the end of the day Sunday, November 29th, and use the code "Black Friday".

Spotlight: College Study Abroad in Ecuador
Not many countries as small as Ecuador have such diverse climate regions. This country has the tallest active volcano in the world, great white sand beaches, tropical rain forests, colorful indigenes markets and ... the Galapagos Islands. The colonial town of Cuenca is the perfect place for the most comprehensive study abroad program around, AmeriSpan's Semester in the Andes

Yes, you'll earn earn a full semester of credit for Spanish and a variety of electives taught in English (see courses) just like many other semester programs. This program even offers extra activities and classes including dance, ceramics, and painting. But what makes this program so very special is its travel aspect including a 4-day trip to the Amazon jungle, a 5-day trip to the breathtaking Galapagos Islands, a one-week trip to Peru including the wondrous Incan ruins of Machu Picchu and more (see the complete itinerary). One of these trips is special, but the program combines all three, a semesters worth of college credit, room and board for less than a semester in the USA! 

The best news, you can still register (deadline Dec 15, 2010) for the program starting in January 2011 and why not apply for a scholarship?
