Overall Experience
September 29, 2023 Overall Good Experience!
I learned a lot about Brazilian culture and the similarities and differences between social justice issues in the United States and in Brazil. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Language acquisition and Brazilian historical knowledge. This program was not worthwhile and if I could do it over again, I would stay on campus. Please note that I have studied abroad internationally before as well as lived abroad in southern Africa for 2 years; my negative experience with this program was not due to difficulty... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
The experience was absolutely worthwhile and learning from a different culture absolutely has transformed my opinions on certain perspectives. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Many great relationships! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I definitely had to learn how to cook for myself and take care of myself in a big city! I also gained a lot of confidence in my foreign language skills. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes it was worthwhile and I gained probably more than I know from this experience. I gained language proficiency, great friends, exploring a new culture, gained the confidence to get around in a foreign country with few language skills, traveling, and more than I can recall right now. I would go back to Brazil in a hearbeat. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
