Spain is mostly known for its warm climate, beautiful beaches, good food and vast cultural heritage. However, during the past years Spain invested in Science significantly and attracted first-class scientists at their top Universities. UK’s No.1 in making holidays abroad is now also on its way to play a leading role in Europe’s cutting-edge research. Spanish is the world’s second most spoken language and there’s no better place to learn it than by being one year in its country of origin. Although English is spoken in the Chemistry laboratories, it is still not actively spoken by most of the Spanish population. It is therefore highly recommended that exchange students arrive in Spain with a sound knowledge of Spanish.
