Living with a homestay family is the best way to immerse yourself in the language and culture of Spain, and students choosing this option find that it is often the most rewarding part of their study abroad experience.

Seville fits the bill for the archetypal Spain of intimate flamenco venues, crowded tapas bars and orange-tree scented squares busy with the throng of cheerful ‘Sevillanos’.
Seville is ideal for exploring on foot. The historic center is largely pedestrianized and is made up of narrow, winding streets, perfect for walking.
Hola! My name is Edu and I have been working for AIFS since 2007, when I began coordinating language exchanges for AIFS students in Granada my hometown. From there, I began organizing more activities, weekend trips and even summer programs, which I continue to work on to this day. I studied Tourism and Work Science, an MBA, and then I worked and studied in London which was a great experience.
I love playing sports such as football, going snowboarding, running and so on. Another passion of mine is traveling, so it is a pleasure to work for AIFS, where I get to travel a lot, as well as enjoy all the activities we arrange for students. Each semester is a new experience and I absolutely love hearing about all your adventures!
I look forward to showing you Seville and sharing my language and the Spanish culture with you all.
