Really nice leaders and students! Everyone always helped and take look care of others! I love this program and this big family!


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

To me, it is not easy because studying abroad is hard to arrange money and different countries have different price levels. Sometimes I can't calculate correctly before I used my money.

Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? $250
Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? You can check some website (like Yelp) to find some good and cheap restaurants before you go to eat!
