Unforgettable Experience! Go to Prague! Past Review

By (Business, University of South Florida) - abroad from 06/29/2013 to 07/27/2013 with

ESAC: Summer in Prague - Business, Marketing and Humanities

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
This trip was most definitely worthwhile! You are completely immersed in the culture and need to be self-reliant to get to class or your internship on time. The public transportation is great and easy to use! However, the czech language is not the most easy language to pick up and learn especially in such a short period of time. I had never left the country before, and I have gone back abroad since!
