Overall Experience
It was so worthwhile. I gained independence and a lot of confidence. I was so happy in Spain and loved the opportunities I had to travel. I absolutely plan to return to Spain and other places in Europe. - University of Florida View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CEA Global Education: Barcelona, Spain
Yes it was! I am not way more culturally aware of different people and in different situations. I no longer think that the best way to do things is the way that we do it here in the States. I grew so much and I will use everything that I learned while abroad in my life. However, I also think that you need to be mature to go, but... - State U View Entire Review

Studying abroad changed me in many ways.

I wish to go back to Barcelona now because feel I know the cit... - Ithaca College View Entire Review
This experience is something I will NEVER forget. It was worth every penny. View Entire Review
This experience was unique and very special that gave me a different perspective about life in general. I was able to learn about another culture and their traditions as they welcomed us with friendly greetings. - Marymount University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CEA Global Education: Barcelona, Spain
My time in Barcelona, firstly, gave me a solid grasp of the Spanish language, which I now use when I travel everywhere. I met many cool people I still keep in touch with. I learned how to travel alone, and the steps to becoming accustomed to a new culture. I picked up all the wonderful aspects of a European lifestyle, something ... - McGill University View Entire Review
This study abroad experience was very worthwhile. It allowed me to travel extensively, become nearly fluent in Spanish, broaden my horizons, and learn a tremendous amount through conversations, classes, and cultural experiences. It has been helpful in my career and every day life. - Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University View Entire Review
Past Review
Yes. I learned about myself and my relationship with the world. I really learned how to live with another culture and appreciate it. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
