Many American students come to Spain to study abroad and find themselves confused, amused and sometimes perplexed with some cultural differences they are exposed to. American universities generally try to give students the opportunity to embrace the Spanish culture completely through three main social areas: home, school and work. Therefore students take classes in Spanish universities, are hosted by Spanish families and work in Spanish companies. This allows a full on immersion in a society that is completely different from the American one.
