I learned about Czech culture. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review Enlightening
I cannot express how grateful I am to have met so many close and life long friends that I have on this trip as well as been given the chance to have uncountable amazing and enlightening experiences in Prague as well as other countries in Europe. It was something that I have never done before and which depended completely on me t... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Different family values Different historical perspectives a whole new culture confidence in myself as an independent adult - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was phenomenal. I grew as a person and learned that not all generalized groups of white people suck. Why? Because they're foreign and you don't know them well enough to pass judgement. - Tulane University View Entire Review
My worldview has been changed permanently. I no longer look at film, people and the world from a strictly American perspective. I've learned that one can adapt to (and adopt!) another culture without feeling like they've lost something of their native culture. Just the opposite! I feel like I could never have shaped this new per... - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review
It was in the sense that I got to go to a film school. I WOULD NEVER reccomend CIEE to ANYONE. the program treated us like we were 12 years old and made integrating even worse because they forced us to do all this stuff together. They were super strict about EVERYTHING and made for a stressful abroad experience. The also don't ... - Tulane University View Entire Review
I learned what it meant to be an adult. To be independent. To love your craft and to grow freely. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. I learned so much about Prague, Czech Republic, and the surrounding countries. The film school was amazing, the professors all very successful and experienced. And the films the local students were making were very impressive, overall a very impressive film scene happening in Prague. I made new friends and... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A lot about myself, being independent, film, and about European culture. Super worthwhile. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I grew as a person and gain a better understanding of the world I live in. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
The experience was amazing. I met some incredibly interesting people that I hope to keep in touch with in the future. I not only learned a lot about film but also about myself. I think I changed as a person for the better. - Tulane University View Entire Review
