Overall Experience
I learned the culture of the Spainards. I had never traveled to Europe. Traveling to Spain widen my perspective of the world. My trip gave me the realization that there were other people in the world who lived very differently from me. Additionally, I was able to learn another language much faster than if I had studied at my Uni... - Brenau University View Entire Review

Oh yes it was worth while. I feel like I have more of an appreciation for different people's way of life now. I have always been pretty accepting, but now I have moved past acceptance to understanding. - Oklahoma City University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Sol Education Abroad - Study Abroad in Spain at University of Granada
You don't know what you have until it's gone. It's a crazy feeling getting home and adapting back to your home culture. Seeing family and friends is nice for the first weekend, but then I would give anything to just hop back on a plane and be back in my second home. I gained a new perspective on life (and specifically how Americ... - Western Kentucky University View Entire Review

Going abroad may seem daunting, but it's an amazing experience for growth. I have become so much more confident in my Spanish speaking and personal life, and have gained a broader world view. - Elizabethtown College View Entire Review
I learned what it is like to be the minority in a culture, and now I have all the respect and patience in the world for anyone in the States whose first language is not English. My culture competence has grown, and I am able to say that I am about 90% fluent in Spanish now.

I realized change is always difficult and might seem unnecessary or unwanted at first, but is completely worthwhile in the long run! Step by step one will realize how much more there is to see, and how much you are missing out if you don't push yourself outside that comfort zone - Xavier University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about the Spanish language and culture.

Studying abroad in Spain for eleven weeks taught me numerous things. I learned a lot about the Spanish culture and about my ability to integrate into it. It also taught me to be more independent and to be confident while doing so. I learned so many traveling hacks and ways to navigate the world.

I was very impressed with my fellow students, especially those from Texas A&M who made up the majority in my cohort. Their values and ambitions were very solid and a welcome change from students I know from non religious eastern elite schools. - The Catholic University of America View Entire Review
I gained confidence, independence, and a lot of Spanish! It was absolutely worthwhile. - West Texas A&M University View Entire Review
This was my first time going abroad without family, or a friend. By going on this trip, and doing the things I did (traveling to different cities, countries, doing new things) I proved to myself that I can be independent. Not only that, but I also learned to adapt; adapt to a new culture, lifestyle, food, mentality. After this e... - Texas A&M University–Central Texas View Entire Review

My overall anxiety that I've had for years decreased. I think it was because I couldn't just wake up or go home I had to live through these days. I gained friends, confidence, a new language, and became more cultural and understanding. - Winona State University View Entire Review
I learned more about life and what I'm capable of, and I've gained a new sense of strength in adaptability. Being abroad and not having a complete grasp of things is a humbling experience that can bring out the best and worst in people. For me, it's taught me how to embrace every opportunity available to me and how to live in sp... - University of Wisconsin - Whitewater View Entire Review

About

Granada is one of the most ancient and diverse cities in Spain. Explore the narrow, cobblestoned streets of the former Muslim quarter, the Albaycin, wander the passageways of the Alhambra, or enter the white-washed caves of the Gypsies and experience the passion of a flamenco performance. Here you will study at the prestigious University of Granada’s Center of Modern Languages (the CLM), located in one of Granada's most historic neighborhoods, the Realejo. Walking to class you will pass through winding cobblestone streets and hidden plazas. Spanish classes are taught in two historic buildings dating to the 16th century. Spanish is the emphasis, but there are also a large number of other modern language courses taught here. This is the ideal program for students interested in Spanish immersion and living in Spain. Granada is the perfect location due to its unique culture, wonderful student vibe, and relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the academics, we include cultural activities on the weekdays, and excursions to different parts of the country on the weekends. Internships are available for those students who stay a semester or academic year. You will live with one of our carefully selected host families and our onsite director will be available for you 24/7.
