I was able to gain the beginnings of language comprehension for another language and start to grasp the ideologies of another culture. A student - University of Hartford View Entire Review
From being completely integrated into the language, my level of Spanish improved from intermediate to nearly fluent. My mind was also open to many new cultures (the culture of Spain in addition to cultures from all around the world from people I met). I also learned more independence and became more outgoing and less shy. Jessie Peck - University of Hartford View Entire Review

THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. IF I COULD AFFORD TO GO AGAIN--I WOULD!! and I would spend a longer time there.

This was the best experience I have ever had. I grew up so much and learned so much about myself and the world. I would do it again in a heartbeat. My ONLY regret is that I only stayed for one semester, instead of two. Molly K - University of Georgia View Entire Review
I gained everything. It was completely worthwhile. I learned so much about life and gained a whole new perspective on different cultures. alex m - Ithaca College View Entire Review
I think it was worthwhile. I expanded vocabulary and my confidence in speaking the language improved the more I practiced and spoke. I thought that the grammar classes were extremely helpful, especially practicing with students from everywhere. I think my eyes opened even more to the cultures outside of the USA, and yet, it didn... Amanda M - Hollins University View Entire Review
I felt it was a highly valuable trip, as well as an enriching learning opportunity. I was able to truly see how another culture lives. Although it was at times hard to adjust, I was glad I was able to broaden my cultural horizons, and be open to a brand new experience. riley m - Birmingham-Southern College View Entire Review
