February 27, 2018 I Recommend Mexico
I learned confidence and independence, as well as another language. - Berea College View Entire Review
I gain and reinforced many virtues. I learned to be more patient, I learned to not jump into conclusions before knowing more about something. I gained more confidence in my survival skills. I learned to be more humble and have sympathy with people. But above all, I learned to love a culture with its virtues and its flaws. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned a lot of historical information of Mexico, which I appreciate. I made a lot of friends with people in my program. I got better at Spanish. My host mom was perfect. I explored a little. It was worthwhile. - Berea College View Entire Review

I've met a few people throughout the semester that I would keep in touch with. Also, I took one of the most challenging Spanish courses that helped me to improve my writing skills. Moreover, I have got to visit historical places and learned about Mayan culture. - Berea College View Entire Review
I learned much more than I expected. I loved the area and the people so much I am going back for a completely different reason this summer. I loved my experience but I know that its not the only experience I want to have. For me, this was the preparation experience. Now I'm going back to have my own adventure :) - Berea College View Entire Review
