Overall Experience
I learned that you are very vulnerable in this situation. Something that goes wrong can seem a lot more upsetting than it should be. Also, don't have such high expectations that when you arrive you are disappointed. I wasn't disappointed with the town or the school, just with some locals (especially men) and the students. - Indiana University of Pennsylvania / IUP View Entire Review
It was amazing! I learned all new things about cultures - Western New England University View Entire Review
Self-confidence, how to program and look up material for the Italian education system. I have refined some research skills and programming skills. Most of all, I learned how to function independently, see the world and teach its people. - University of Akron View Entire Review

I learned a lot about taking care of myself and being 'on my own' (without family + old friends). It was definitely worthwhile. Homesickness sucks but it teaches you how to deal with it since you don't have a choice. I loved experiencing the culture first hand, and living in a place so different from my area at home. - Indiana University of Pennsylvania / IUP View Entire Review

May 10, 2016 What A Dream
What a loaded question, to asked what I gained and learned... I learned how to meet new people with no assumptions about who they are, offering them a blank slate on which our friendship can begin. I now have renewed confidence in my ability to learn languages and speak with random people. It makes me wonder why I don't talk to ... - Point Loma Nazarene University View Entire Review
