I learned self-awareness and characteristics about myself I would not have known without traveling abroad. I learned that I am capable to complete tasks and goals to completion, as well as gaining heightened interpersonal and communication skills. - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Buenos Aires - Study Abroad With IES Abroad
I learned how to survive in an area where I was not fluent in the language. I also learned how to manage money, which is harder to do when it is a foreign currency that you're not familiar with. I also got better at making friends with people from other parts of the United States and of course, the world (having made friends wit... - Western Washington University View Entire Review
My experience there was more than worthwhile. I get emotional thinking about the bonds I made with Argentinians, international students, and other American students while I was there. I am fluent in Spanish now, which is so nice. Using Spanish day to day helped me perfect it. I learned that there aren't as many differences as I ... - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
I learned a great deal about Argentina, the Spanish language, myself, and journalism via my internship. - Trinity University View Entire Review
February 10, 2018 Unforgettable Semester
It was a great experience to get out of my comfort zone and force myself to adapt to a new culture, location, and language. I grew as a student and as a general person by gaining a much better understanding of what goes on outside of the United States. - St. Olaf College View Entire Review
This past summer I studied abroad for 6 weeks in Buenos Aires, Argentina through IES Abroad. From the moment I arrived in the airport until the day I left, I felt supported and encouraged from IES Abroad staff. At the airport, I received an alfajor, and this classic Argentinian snack became my after-lunch dessert everyday—for be... - Harvard University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Buenos Aires - Study Abroad With IES Abroad
I lived with one woman, and her lovely, old perro. She was such a sweet and caring, yet chill and funny woman, and something I can't thank her enough for is opening her arms to make me a part of her family. I would go over her kids' houses for dinner and lunch and her grandkids quickly became my hermanitos. The way I was able to... - Case Western Reserve University View Entire Review
August 15, 2016 A Worthwhile Challenge
confidence in speaking spanish, sense of independence. - St. Olaf College View Entire Review
I learned way too much to write in one paragraph! I learned how to handle myself in a new place, how to travel alone or with new people, how to communicate with people when you don't speak their language (I.e. Portuguese in Brazil), and so much more. - Bentley University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. I learned so much about the culture and history of Argentina, and my Spanish and intercultural skills improved. I also learned a lot about myself and what I value. It can be challenging at times, but it was a really positive experience overall. - Rice University View Entire Review
When I studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I went out of my comfort zone and got the most out of the experience. I learned about the culture in Argentina and how people there are so passionate by talking as much as I could with locals and people who have lived in Argentina for a long time. I learned so much about how Ar... - Santa Clara University View Entire Review
Absolutely. You learn so much about the history, politics and the local scene and culture. Sounds cliche but its not, you really do learn. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Buenos Aires - Study Abroad With IES Abroad
I gained a better understanding of what it is like to be on my own as well as a deeper understanding of the Spanish language. Mostly I became proud that I can speak even the little bit of Spanish that I do have. It was definitely worthwhile! - Rhodes College View Entire Review
August 07, 2018 I Want To Go Back Now!
I learned a lot from my time abroad. I learned how to find my way around a new city and use the subway system! I also learned that I can move to a new city and feel comfortable in it in a few months. I also learned that the best way to learn a language is to be fully immersed in it and speak to your host family a lot. This exper... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
August 02, 2018 Best Semester Ever!
I improved my spanish skills a lot and it really pushed me outside my comfort zone. It was worthwhile because I met so many people and traveled and learned so much. - University of Tulsa View Entire Review
It was incredibly worthwhile. Not only did I drastically improve my language skills, which is very important to me, but I also learned a lot about living in a culture different from your own. I have a very different viewpoint on people who move internationally, and feel like I much more understand what it means to move to a new ... - Case Western Reserve University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Buenos Aires - Study Abroad With IES Abroad
I have been taking Spanish since third grade and I have not seen myself improve until coming to Argentina! I got to interact with local people in my community service project, in weekend trips, and every day in my program! I wouldn't say that my experience transformed me in a huge way like many people do but it made me much more... - University of Virginia View Entire Review
September 21, 2017 An Unforgettable Journey
My experience in Buenos Aires was truly unforgettable. That is a cliche thing to say, I know, as it is said by virtually each and every student who studies abroad. But I truly believe that my time not only in Buenos Aires, but specifically with IES was a special one to say the least. Buenos Aires is a magical city. You have the ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
August 07, 2017 I Miss It Already!
culture of BA and learned the language a lot better and am way more confident. Yes, worthwhile! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I improved my Spanish skills a considerable amount, and feel comfortable speaking with whomever, native speaker or not. I earned credits toward majors at home, became fully proficient, made tons of friends, and had a great cultural experience. - University of Michigan - Ann Arbor View Entire Review
August 13, 2016 An Unforgettable City!
I loved that I got to practice my Spanish everyday. I also feel much more independent now. I had never lived in a big city before, so learning the public transportation system and how to get around made me feel much more comfortable with traveling. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
I gained a lot of confidence while living in Buenos Aires. I learned that I can handle living in a foreign country without my family. I was able to experience a completely different culture and improve my Spanish language skills. It was definitely a worthwhile experience. - Pennsylvania State University - Berks View Entire Review

February 06, 2016 Home Away From Home
I grew a lot as a person. I think that my experience abroad helped me see things in a different way but also put every situation in perspective and learn how to rationalize, as well as live in a more relaxed way. Not only did I learn many things academically, I also had one of the most incredible social and cultural experience o... - Duke University View Entire Review
Yes, it was worthwhile. I learned lot of Spanish. My reading comp and writing improved drastically and I got much better at engaging in everyday conversations (even if my grammar is still horrendous), which brought me back to why I wanted to learn the language in the first place. I learned how to navigate a quirky public transpo... - Trinity University View Entire Review
