Overall Experience
Extremely worthwhile. I not only was able to improve my fluency in my second language and form meaningful relationships, but I also learned a lot about self-sufficiency and that I am capable of adjusting to challenging experiences. - Clark University - Worcester
It was a fantastic experience. I learned a lot about Chile and South America, I really improved my Spanish skills, and I can't wait to go back. - Tulane University
I LIVED in Chile for an entire year. I learned how to speak the language and be fully apart of a Chilean family while being apart of the Chilean culture. I furthered my ability to adapt and be flexible as well as forming long-lasting relationships. - Hope College
Best time of my life, hands down. I have to go back! I'm hoping to find some kind of work there so that I can return someday. - Tulane University
Was a great step outside of American bubble to see real life. Learned about my personal strength to rise to the occasion and speak a foreign language - Tulane University
