As a student majoring in Spanish and International Relations, studying in Madrid was a like a capstone to my undergraduate studies.

People will tell you that when you go abroad something changes in you. I never really felt this until I went on to Spain. Coming from a small southern town to a bustling city environment was a huge change for me. Especially when my host mother spoke not one word of English. To be honest, the first night I was not so sure tha... - University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill View Entire Review
I would highly recommend this program to someone interested in studying abroad with the goal of immersing yourself in Spanish language and culture.

I gained a lot of confidence from my study abroad experience. In myself as an individual and as well as in my Spanish. I learned a lot about myself and the experience made me feel powerful because I was a young woman who went out on my own into an unknown country, and I completely conquered it. I fell in love with Spain and I wa... - University of Michigan - Ann Arbor View Entire Review
