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
May 28, 2019 Amazing Program!
I gained a better grasp of Spanish, and how to manage myself abroad long term. It was definitely worthwhile. - Smith College View Entire Review
I have a much better grasp of spanish and independence. - Colby College View Entire Review
One of the most important things I gained was a perspective of world history from a country that wasn't the U.S. It can be a little perturbing, especially to see how history is told from a country that was a major European colonial power, but it's eye opening. - Amherst College View Entire Review
I learned how to be independent in a culture and language that was not my own. - Smith College View Entire Review
I gained new friends, a new family and new Spanish capabilities. I learned how to calm down, enjoy life and destress. It was totally worthwhile and I would recommend this program to anyone and everyone who wants to practice Spanish and have a great, fun time abroad. - Smith College View Entire Review
I'm not sure yet. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with PRESHCO: Study Abroad in Córdoba, Spain
An enhanced understanding of the Spanish language, and an entirely new comprehension of Spanish culture and way of life, for which I am grateful to have experienced. It was definitely all worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

-Spanish comprehension skills -some speaking skills -confidence in traveling alone -confidence to find and make friends - Smith College View Entire Review
I obviously gained improved knowledge of the Spanish language and culture, but I would say that I gained even more in learning to adjust to an entirely unfamiliar environment and in becoming a more independent person while abroad. I definitely consider my experience abroad to be worthwhile. - Colby 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

Yes, my main goal was to improve my Spanish. I became more independent and street-smart. It was definitely worthwhile. I will go back one day. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about Spanish cultures and took classes I never thought i would. - Colby College View Entire Review
May 23, 2019 Immerse Yourself
Being uncomfortable and unfamiliar with small customs pushed me out of my comfort zone. I learned to try extra to communicate and ask for plenty of help. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile! I learned so much about myself, had a wonderful, fun semester, and learned a ton of Spanish. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I gained a lot of new language skills, became more independent, and learned how to do things such as plan international trips, which aren't things I would have gotten otherwise. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to adapt to a culture very different from my own. I learned how to problem solve when I had difficulty with language. I learned an entirely new set of customs and traditions. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned to be independent and to talk to people more confidently in a foreign language -- it was absolutely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and how I work in a culture that is much more relaxed. I really enjoyed this time to prioritise different things in my life other than getting good grades. It was definitely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
December 20, 2018 Great, Would Recommend
Definitely worthwhile. My writing definitely has improved. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
