I developed my writing skills and learned and incredible amount of history. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. My writing improved significantly, as well as my research, and - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned resilience and independence from my time abroad. All at once, I found myself responsible for meals, cooking, laundry, time management, and so many other things that I took for granted at Middlebury.

While I am part of the majority of people who tend to roll their eyes when someone tells me their study abroad experience changed their life, I can now fully say that I understand the sentiment.

Much gained. It was worrthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Appreciated getting to try out a very different style of instruction, which ended up working much better for me than the traditional American lecture-style mode. Got a lot out of it in terms of knowledge & skills, but think the most important lesson for me was about how I best learn. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
