Mester Language School was founded in 1991 to teach Spanish to students of all ages and nationalities. The curriculum gives its international students the opportunity to feel, enjoy and be an active part of the unique way of life, which is so different from their own: the Spanish way of life. Cultural immersion includes excursions to historic monuments, salsa or guitar lessons, Spanish film, cooking lessons, as well as home stays.
All students must have at least a 2.5 GPA, have completed two academic semesters at NU, and be in good standing.

Madrid, the capital of Spain since 1562, is a large yet walkable city filled with monuments and museums. It is a lively city combining past and modern cultures.
Salamanca is 2.5 hours Northwest from Madrid by car or bus. It is a city of stone, sun, and streets for strolling. It has Spain's grandest plaza major for gathering and lingering and its oldest university providing a college town atmosphere.
Seville is the capital and largest city in Andalucia, a region of Southern Spain. Seville is a bustling metropolis set amid ancient Roman, Islamic, and Gothic sites. Think of narrow streets, hidden plazas, flamenco dancing, and bullfighting when you come to Seville to understand another part of Spain.
