Deeper understanding of myself, understanding of tidying abroad as a business, improved Spanish skills - Berea College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CEA: Granada, Spain
I learned more about myself as I struggled with loneliness and homesickness, and while it seemed to be overwhelming at times, I also had so many good moments and made so many great memories with the friends I made here and the places I got to see.

Expanding my language and how to get around. Independence also. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I gained a whole new perspective on the world. It was cool seeing how other people live. I became a more open, non judgmental person. Granada was 100% worth my time, and I wish more than anything that I could go back. - Illinois State University View Entire Review

Past Review Life Changing.
I've learned and fell in love with a new culture. It was absolutely worthwhile! - Illinois State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CEA: Granada, Spain
It may seem “easy” to just pack your bags, board the plane and daydream about the memories you will be creating abroad, and though fulfilling those dreams is important in the experience overall, the challenges you will face make up just as important a part of it as well. As an introvert, I learned it ESSENTIAL to put my needs fi... - University of Oklahoma View Entire Review
I can speak, read, and write more fluently in Spanish than I ever would have been able to at home. I'm more confident and independent, and I've made amazing friendships. - University of Tennessee - Knoxville View Entire Review

Past Review Touch The Sky.
My experience abroad was definitely worthwhile! I learned to live life to the fullest and go on every adventure possible. Also, to not compare yourself to others since we all have histories and the fun part is getting to know that history of others! Finally, I learned to just pick up and travel- experience new cultures, try new ... - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
I've really learned to be more open minded towards other people and other cultures. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Yes it was. I have gained so much self-confidence and know that I am capable of so much more than I thought. I learned about different cultures and have discovered both things that I like and don't like about our culture. Plus, my language skills have improved so much. I gained Spanish friends and a Spanish family that I will fo... - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It absolutely was worthwhile, and I think everyone should study abroad. I have learned so much about myself, what I can handle personally, academically, socially and I have been amazed at the person I've found myself to be. This semester I have been stretched in so many areas that I know this experience has been a life changing ... - Illinois State University View Entire Review
