The best thing i've ever done! Past Review

By (Marketing, Georgia College & State University) - abroad from 05/30/2014 to 06/28/2014 with

ISA Study Abroad in Sevilla, Spain

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I learned more than I could ever imagine by studying abroad. It taught me not only about culture and international business but so much about myself. Going to a foreign country is very intimidating especially if you don’t know the language but you have to learn to adjust and fully immerse yourself into the culture. It was 100% worthwhile to study abroad in Sevilla. The memories and people I met will always hold a special place in my heart.

* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? I wish I would have learned a little more Spanish.
