Past Review Spain = Awesome
Apart from becoming fluent in Spanish, which I don;t think would have been possible without a full immersion experience, I came away with a much more open worldview. - California State University - Northridge View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile, I learned a lot more there than I do here. However, I did fail two out of the four classes I took due to the single exam at the end that counted for my entire grade in the class.

Past Review

I believe my Spanish did improve but not as much as I had hoped it would. Spain is not a country I would like to visit again or live in.

It was a great experience that allowed me to know other cultures and lifestyles. In addition, I learnt a lot about the country where I studied.

Past Review
I gained a lot of personal experience and reached a lot of language skills. The first two weeks where great to be welcomed in Madrid. They where filled with activities, excursions and explanations about Spanish life. I would always do the program as well and advise everyone to do it as well! - International Students on Abroad101 View Entire Review
