I became a more independent person. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained confidence in living a city life from finding an apartment to navigating public transportation. I learned how to assimilate into a new place as much as possible and how to communicate better with people from different cultures or in different languages. I learned that I love Madrid -- definitely worthwhile! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
