The señoras who host students are welcoming, caring and vigilant. They will help you learn the customs and manners of your new home and culture. The faculty of Instituto Berceo are professional Spanish instructors who organize afternoon trips to museums, the pools and walking field trips around Salamanca. Ms. Priceman has worked closely with them for years and is looking forward to this summer’s program.
