Different culture aspects, improved language skills, amazing friends, got to visit different cities in Spain and countries in Europe, great relationship with host families, learned a lot about the culture and history of Spain. Yes, it was worthwhile. - Xavier University View Entire Review
On top of gaining the credits I needed to finish a Spanish minor, I gained perspective on other areas in the world and people living very different lives than me. I also improved my Spanish literacy which is a skill I will use for the rest of my life. - Winona State University View Entire Review

Of course it was worthwhile! It was the best experience of my life. I had never been abroad before and I was honestly very nervous and scared. But after traveling and experiencing just a small other portion of the world made my eyes open and see what more the world has to offer. - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review

I gained much more Spanish knowledge than I thought I would and even changed my minor to Spanish because I liked learning it so much. I loved learning the culture of Granada and historical things about the city. It was 100% worth the money and time spent there. - University of Houston View Entire Review
Cultural awareness is one of the main things I gained from this experience. I still keep apart of Granada, Spain close to my heart and on my mind. I am not aware of how different cultures are and how they might be all over the world. - Morgan State University View Entire Review

Not only did I improve my Spanish significantly, I was able to immerse myself i... - University of Houston View Entire Review
