Malaga Spanish Language Trip – 2020

The Modern Languages Department is organizing an exciting trip to ¡España!

This two-week trip will be an amazing opportunity to immerse yourself in Spanish culture, discover its fabulous places, people and food, and practice the Spanish that you have been learning in your classes!

Students will travel to Málaga, a city on Spain’s Mediterranean coast that has been declared a European “cultural capital.” During their two weeks in Málaga, they will live with host Spanish families, take language courses at the internationally recognized Malaca Institute, get “real-life” experience speaking Spanish in a work setting, and travel to several renowned centers of historic (Moorish) Spain.

Here is a peek at part of your itinerary:

  • Orientation and tour of downtown Málaga;
  • Guided visits and excursions to historical and cultural sites and regions (Sevilla, the Alhambra, a typical Andalusian shipyard, Picasso Museum, etc.);
  • Internship experience in bookshops, hotels, car and bike rental outlets, etc.
  • Daily Spanish conversation classes at the Malaca Institute.
  • Cooking lessons, flamenco dance show, tapas evening and more…

THIS TRIP IS MORE AFFORDABLE THAN YOU THINK! Hurry, contact Maria-Elena Grijalva at mgrijalva@dawsoncollege.qc.ca for specific details.

Are you ready for an exciting German adventure? If so, keep on reading…

Dawson students enrolled in German courses may take part in the German section’s annual exchange to Germany.

In collaboration with our German partner schools in Freiburg, we offer our students the opportunity to welcome a young German partner at home for two weeks in the fall and then visit the partner at his or her home in Freiburg for two weeks the following spring.

In Germany, our students, together with teachers from both Montréal and Freiburg, will discover the lovely city of Freiburg, located in the Black Forest. In addition to German language courses offered in the morning, our students will experience daily life in Germany at their partner’s home. From Freiburg, we will go on day trips to nearby Basel (Switzerland) and Strasbourg (France). After our two-week stay in Freiburg, our group will then head to Berlin, to spend four days in Germany’s exciting capital.

The cost per student is $1700 (for the 2017-2018 exchange; cost may vary). In the past, the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement Supérieur du Québec has always supported our students financially with generous grants.
