« Ruta Martiana, BY CAROLINE SCHULTE - CIEE PALMA DE MALLORCA 2015 | Main | Trip to Granada - CIEE Palma de Mallorca, Fall 2015 »


First month with CIEE Palma de Mallorca, Fall 2015

Presentation day 1 2

Orientation: This is me! Activity, a student introduces herself to the group

A month has passed since the day our students were nervous to meet their homestays at the orientation hotel, and since that first night when they were excited and a little bit afraid to try the different kind of Mallorcan tapas and pambolis with jamón. Now our students are settled in their Spanish home, know how to move around the intricate streets of Palma, some of them have started to meet with their intercambio, and are attending regularly their CIEE and university classes.

CIEE language class Spanish for Business and Tourism visited the 15th century castle of the city of Palma. This castle is well known for its museum of the history of Palma, for being the only Gothic round castle in Spain, wonderfully preserved, and for its incredible views of the Bay of Palma. No wonder its name Bellver means “Beautiful view”.


This semester, CIEE students are enrolled in the following CIEE and UIB classes: Spanish for Business and Tourism, Tourism and Sustainable Development, Spanish Mediterranean Cooking and Wine Tasting, Advanced Contemporary Spanish Cinema and Literature, Tourism Marketing I, Operations & Processes in Tourism Enterprises, Contemporary Spanish Literature, Poetics of the 20th Century, Biochemistry of Membranes and Bioenergy, Business Intercultural Communication.
