Overall Experience
I learned about other cultures, practices and customs. I gained knowledge about the world around me, myself, and a new language. The experience abroad was amazing and I would go back in a heart beat. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I would say I'm more outgoing and adventurous now. Spanish lifestyle is fairly laidback you have to go with the flow. They have this saying in Madrid "No pasa nada". Madrileños say it all the time. It means "Don't worry about it. Everything's gonna be okay". Even though it made my senior year schedule slightly less flexible, goi... - Tufts University View Entire Review
I gained a global perspective, Spanish skills, and an appreciation for another culture as well as my own. It was completely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile and don't get me wrong I loved the program and the people. If I had to do it again though I would have looked for a program with more of a foreign component that was less Americanized. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

It made me realize that I would like to continue traveling and that I may consider living in Spain in the future. - Fordham University View Entire Review
My Spanish improved drastically, especially on the conversational side. I got to experience many different countries in Europe and my study abroad experience made me even more interested global issues and cultures. - University of Redlands View Entire Review
- University of Saint Thomas View Entire Review
Yes, I would say it was. I learned a lot about Spain and America's relationship as well as their place in the world, as well as a great understanding of Spanish culture. I also became a lot more aware of the way that different people live and think, as well as the way they see Americans. - DePauw University View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile, however I didn't like that it was to americanized. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about a culture very different from the American culture. I got to know a lot of amazing people and got to know places I thought I would never see. Overall, just having the experience of living alone in such an amazing city, is an something priceless. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Of course it was worthwhile. I got to explore an incredible new city (and country) and really get a hold on the Spanish language. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the Spanish culture and the city of Madrid! It was definitely worthwhile! - Villanova University View Entire Review
The trip was one of if not the most important experience of my life. Beyond seeing new places, making new friends, and speaking a new language, I gained a new self-awareness during my time abroad. By constantly pushing and testing myself in what I could do, I feel like I have returned an adult with the emotional, physical, menta... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Inevitably, I got as close to fluency as I ever will, and a better understanding of Spanish culture. Although I didn't befriend that many native Spaniards, I did make friends for life from the IES program. I learned how to be more spontaneous and open-minded. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Hala Madrid!

YES! I loved everything about it - Trinity University View Entire Review
I made great friends, visited beautiful cities, ate delicious food, and experienced things I otherwise never would have been able to. I grew as a person into a new and improved man. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
ABSOLUTELY. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
I gained more perspectives from more varying countries, cultures and people. My experience deepened my already growing desire to travel and learn about more cultures. My plans have always been internationally related being an International Business and Spanish Linguistics major I really want to become involved in the field of ... - University of Saint Thomas View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. - Austin College View Entire Review
Minus a few hiccups, I do not regret going to Madrid. It gave me different perspective on Spain, and I was able to realized that I enjoy Catalan culture a lot more, and Catalan people. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
