Yes. Enlightening. Best professors I've ever had. I was treated as a professional. Courses were well organized, relaxant, focused & well taught. Schedule was rigorous, yet humane.

Language broadening, confidence in speaking it, trying out words and phrases and in reading the language. New cultural experiences. Friendship with international fellow students.
