Overall Experience
I learned so much about myself and the world. I learned to journal. I learned to speak a language, and speak it well. I learned to expose myself to new people and ideas. I learned to empathize with people living in a traditional country. I learned about the horrors of Franco and the Inquisition, about the beauties of Spanish art... - University of Alabama - Tuscaloosa View Entire Review
I did learn a lot of problem-solving skills. There were many times where I had to learn a new bus system or subway system in a really quick period of time in order to not miss my ride. I also had to get out of my comfort zone a lot and actually ask people for directions or how to do something. This really put my Spanish skills t... - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review

I learned to live life at a slower pace to enjoy it to the fullest, meet all kinds of people from different cultures & backgrounds, don't be shy, never have regrets, and do things that will make you happy. It was the most worthwhile experience of my life. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
I learned what I value and what is most important to me. It was definitely worthwhile, the experience had its challenges but I know that I endured and was able to get through them learning and having fun along the way. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
I gained confidence in my Spanish speaking abilities, met amazing people and learned about a completely different culture. I also had the opportunity to travel and see several other countries.

Of course! If you have the chance to study abroad, do it! I have gained so much knowledge about living in a new country and being surrounded by a world of cultures.

A student studying abroad with CEA: Seville, Spain
I learned so much and being sensitive when interacting with different cultures. My classes and general experience gave me knowledge about the history of Spain, but also about the way that things currently are in the country. My horizons were broadened and I am forever going to cherish my time abroad. - Liberty University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and my overall ability to live on my own. You have a lot of time to reflect on things you've done and things you've yet to do. You learn how to thrive outside of your comfort zone and be okay when you're alone in a difficult situation. I think my best takeaway has to do with the fact that a lot of my... - University of Wisconsin - Stout View Entire Review

Past Review Seville
I learned a lot about myself and Spanish culture, and my Spanish improved greatly. Definitely a worthwhile experience. - Berea College View Entire Review
YES. Studying abroad was the best decision I have ever made. I highly recommend everyone do it, because it provides you with insight you couldn't get in any other way. You really do come back seeing the world differently, but a good different. I feel like a different person. I can't wait to travel more and to go back to Sevilla.... - usc View Entire Review
I loved my study abroad experience! I learned how to become more independent and enjoy what life has to offer. In America we have different priorities and studying abroad has definitely made me question some of them. I got to figure myself out and gain a better understanding of people from other areas of the world. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
