Immersing yourself in a different culture is a great opportunity to grow as a person.

Of course, there were some restrictions with COVID, but by and large I was... - University of Puget Sound View Entire Review

Independence as a young adult, and it was worthwhile. - Smith College View Entire Review
First, I had the possibility to learn how to live alone, independently, in a country with a different culture and language.

I gain a lot from this experience. First of all it allowed me to get deep into a new culture, meeting new people and exploring the country.

I learned how it is to live in a different country with a whole different system. I liked seeing how the university there worked.

I definitely learned independence because this was my first time having to set up a phone plan or buy my own hotel when traveling. I also felt like being alone was really scary, but I'm proud that I overcame it. I liked learning about the English education system as well and comparing it to what I experience here at America. I f... - University of Southern California View Entire Review
