My study abroad experience was MORE than worthwhile. I came here very nervous, and am now leaving as a confident adult. I have gained the ability to navigate myself around an unknown city, handle stressful situations, deal with indescribably gross hostels, and appreciate different cultures. I plan to return ASAP. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It was the best thing that I've ever done in my life and I feel like a different person now. I've become more independent and have gotten more confidence in my foreign language speaking ability and I've also made amazing friendships.

A student studying abroad with CEA Global Education: Granada, Spain
I became much more independent while studying abroad. Even if i wanted my parents to help me out with something, they couldn't because they dont speak Spanish. I learned so much about other cultures. Not just Spain's either! I met people every week from around the world. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I would never trade anything for this year, it was one of the best times of my life. I love the Spanish culture and my host family was amazing. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I now understand how different the American culture is from other cultures all over the world. I know have a better understanding of how the world works, and why people do the things that they do. Studying abroad just confirmed my desires to teach high school Spanish when I graduate from college. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
