Had an incredible chance to be fully immersed in Chilean culture and Spanish language. Made new friends and experienced a different way of living. 100% worthwhile. - Johns Hopkins University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Santiago - PontificiaUniversidad Catolica de Chile
I learned so much spanish. I learned how to adapt to a new environment. I learned how to travel and make accommodations on my own. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
Independence! Everything I did was on my own and I definitely made mistakes here and there but they were worthwhile for future travels. I gained a great deal of knowledge of the Chilean healthcare system and how it compares and differs from that of the U.S. - Wofford College View Entire Review
I feel like I understand in depth a culture different from my own and I have a confidence that I can work and travel outside of the United States with ease. - Trinity University View Entire Review
My self-confidence increased and I trust myself way more than I did before. It was the most incredible experience and worth every bit of homesickness or stress. - University of California - Santa Barbara View Entire Review
Very worthwhile. It is true that I learned more comparatively about the United States than I truly learned about Chile. Politics and International Relations have faces now, whereas before it was theory and talk. - Providence College View Entire Review
gained a knowledge of the world that i didn't have before, makes you think of yourself in a totally new light - Trinity University View Entire Review
There is so much to learn about 1 country!! - Tufts University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. Just to really live and be in a different country and culture for such a long time is completely different than just traveling. You get to really know the people and how things work and begin to feel at home there. That can be a confusing feeling but I feel blessed to have made more than one coun... - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Past Review
It was very worthwhile and I learned well what it feels like for others that don't speak my language in my home country. Adequate communication is something that shouldn't be taken for granted. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Study abroad was an utterly incredible and worthwhile experience. - Brown University View Entire Review
I learned a lot more Spanish than I previously knew. It was more difficult to make friends with local students than I thought it would be, and I didn't get to do as much traveling as I would have liked, but it was still worth it. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned how to become a more outgoing person and how to adjust to life in a different society. - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review
I picked up some language skills and learned a lot about Chilean culture, history, politics, and lifestyle. - Providence College View Entire Review
I'm now a more relaxed, easy-going person than I was before. It's amazing to look back and see how much less stress I feel now than I felt before. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
YES!!!! It was honestly one of the most difficult things I've ever done but so incredibly worth it. I got homesick a lot but I'm glad I went. I learned and was exposed to so many realities of life that we don't usually see when we're living our own comfortable lives in the US. Studying abroad gets you out of that comfort zone a... - Ithaca College View Entire Review
Speaking fluent spanish will definitely help in the job search. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile! I learned more about the country of Chile, and more about myself as well. I feel like I learned a lot and I am so glad that I did it. It also impacted my views on what I want to potentially go into as a career. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Very much so. The U.S. appears different from the time I left, and I appreciated my Mexican culture much more. I need to explore the Earth before I go. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
