I gained much more confidence in my language ability and many new friends. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My language skills improved quite a bit--especially my vocabulary and ease of speaking in Spanish. I also met some really cool people, both other European study abroad students and Spanish students that I will definitely be keeping in touch with. I left feeling fulfilled and grateful for the experience. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

July 25, 2021 Siesta In Spain
I learned so much about how different life is in Europe from fashion trends to just like the pace. I don't know if it was because I felt like I was on vacation, but there was just less pressure and stress. Everything I did felt very much about being in the moment and just enjoying it. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
July 15, 2021 Great

New friends and more confidence in my Spanish - Wellesley College View Entire Review
huge gain in language proficiency, international perspective, some travelling experience, being more comfortable out of my comfort zone - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My experience was very worthwhile. My Spanish and my comfort and fluency in speaking improved in ways that never would have been possible without the immersive experience. I also learned so much from being immersed in the culture and having the incredible opportunity to see many places within Spain, each providing a unique and i... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Meeting new friends, taking risks, learning to communicate with others, learning a different way of life, learning more about myself, gaining confidence and trying new things - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile because I learned a lot about myself and how I manage stressful situations. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the Spanish school system and culture and discovered it was more different than I'd originally expected. I also had the opportunity to go outside my comfort zone and be more independent. - Oberlin College View Entire Review
I learned that I love the Spanish language and that I want to eventually teach it one day. I did not really have this feeling before coming to Spain. I believe this program was truly worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I became more confident in Spanish, I also became more confident in myself. Having to navigate a completely new culture I was in uncomfortable situations that I was able to navigate and I therefore became more confident. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My Spanish improved drastically, and I enjoyed learning a lot of colloquial Spanish. As someone who wanted to go abroad for my Spanish major and for language acquisition purposes, it was definitely worthwhile! - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I learned a lot about culture and language but also a lot about myself. I think it was worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My experience abroad allowed me to gain an international lens and wider perspective on all issues. The experience of living with a host family was invaluable and the cultural and language immersion was key to my success, growth, and enjoyment during my time. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how much fun living in Spain could be - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I became much more fluent in Spanish and learned a lot about handling myself independently in a foreign country. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned I never want to live in Cordoba again, but it was a good thing to learn, very interesting to live in a foreign country especially with a host family because it makes you feel more integrated to the culture. Also my spanish improved a ton and I feel mostly fluent now, definitely worth it - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I depended my knowledge of Spanish, local Spanish culture and history, and my own self-confidence and global thinking. It was worthwhile in these senses, but who knows- I probably would have experienced the same things if I did another program somewhere else. The program was great but I just wasn't satisfied with my time in Spai... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My Spanish improved immensely, I made lifelong friends, I learned a lot about a new culture and how to find my place in it, I gained confidence... It was completely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained self-confidence above all else. Coming back to my home institution finally confident in my knowledge, academic skills, networking skills, and general life skills, is definitely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I've definitey learned more about myself, improved my ability to communicate with those around me, and become a bit more independent. - Connecticut College View Entire Review
This program let me push myself out of my comfort zone while knowing there was always a group of students and staff to help me if I needed it. It was completely worthwhile. I learned about a new culture, improved my Spanish, and made new friends. - Oberlin College View Entire Review
