February 13, 2020 An Impactful Semester
I had previously studied abroad for a year during high school. I perfected my Spanish skills there. I was excited to relive the experience I had on my own this time.

Language skills, living on my own, traveling - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained substantial independence and trust in myself. Being forced to live alone in a foreign country in another language is the ultimate test of your ability to protect and advocate for yourself, which was a challenge I think I needed to face.

August 12, 2022 Study In Madrid!!!
I wish I had studied abroad for an entire year. I loved learning about life in Madrid, and by the end of the semester feeling like I belonged there. You also learn so much about how you live independently. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
