Language improvements, independence, getting out of my comfort zone. A student - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I had a stellar time abroad in Madrid this past semester, and a large part of that was thanks to CEA. The on-site staff team were incredible (Thanks Silvia, Alvaro, and Emilia!) and they did a great job at making the transition to Madrid as smooth as possible. Throughout the semester, the staff were readily available to answer a... Ryan Mellin - Colorado State University View Entire Review
I gained a ton of things being abroad. I gained a greater appreciation for cultures, traveling, and language as a whole. It was incredibly worthwhile because I got to see how other education systems work and how even just simple cultural differences of the lifestyles here. Lauryn - Belmont University View Entire Review
I learned life experiences that i will never forget. Malorie - Stephen F. Austin State University View Entire Review
I learned so much about the culture, language and history. I gained a lot of friends during the trip that I know will be life long friendships. It was worth every penny and I'd recommend to anyone who is deciding whether to study abroad or not to just do it. I promise it will be one of the best decisions you will ever make. Aluna A - Western Washington University View Entire Review

The European culture is so important to experience, and it's humbling to learn about other countries history, culture, geography, economy, etc. It is things like these that you cannot learn without going out and seeing it unfold in front of you. Grayson H - Universidad Antonio de Nebrija / Nebrija University View Entire Review
I gained an amazing experience in stepping outside of my comfort zone. I would recommend studying abroad to absolutely everyone. Cara Stevens - University of Dayton View Entire Review
This experience was very much worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself in the course of the two and a half months that I was abroad. I stepped out of my comfort zone on many occasions and took on opportunities that I never thought I would. I became a lot more independent and open to new things after this trip , which I believe a... Anna - DePaul University View Entire Review
That every minute you have can't be taken for granted. Living abroad taught me so much about myself that I would have never been able to learn here at home. It was eye opening to know that in four months I was able to call another city halfway across the world, home. Alexa M - California State University - Fullerton View Entire Review
That there are so many ways at viewing the world, I really became sympathetic to other cultures views. Best decision I ever made to study abroad. alexandra.capecci - Shippensburg University View Entire Review
Now I work in the non-profit field with primarily Spanish-speakers. Studying in Madrid was probably the only college semester that I would call 'fun' so I suppose it was the redeeming aspect of my four years in the Spanish department. As for traveling, my semester in Madrid taught me that living abroad is much better than taking... Alison M - Point Loma Nazarene University View Entire Review
Yes. I learned how to respect, tolerate, understand, and enjoy other cultures. The experience had made me appreciate my studies and the ability to gain a world knowledge. Tynekia G - Towson University View Entire Review
Live the life of a true madrileno when you study abroad in Spain's capital and largest city with CEA. Madrid boasts an impressive array of cultural and historical attractions, from the amazing art works of Picasso, Miro, Goya, el Greco, Dali and more, all housed in the Art Triangle -- the Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen Museums -- to the stunning architecture that's sprinkled throughout the city. Spend a lazy afternoon strolling through the Casa de Campo or El Retiro parks, or browse the shops on the Gran Via. Take your classes at our partner institution, Antonio de Nebrija University, and focus on business, liberal arts, or Spanish language and culture. Of course, no study abroad experience in Madrid would be complete without a thorough exploration of the city's infamous tapas bars! Immerse even further into Spanish culture -- and gain hands-on experience -- by taking advantage of volunteering opportunities through CEA and participating in cultural activities, such as flamenco shows, tours of Palacio Real, and our Intercambio (language exchange) program.
