Absolutely! My speaking ability improved immensely and I will never forget the friends, family, or memories I made in Alicante. I wish I could go back for a much longer time. I was much more self-aware after studying abroad, and I feel like I understand not only Spain better, but my own country as well. - University of Iowa View Entire Review
