Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? Each week I probably spent about $300 American.
Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Budget your spending from the beginning until the end of your trip. Don't buy things just to be buying them. Impulse buying will make you bankrupt on trips such as these.


How would you rate your language skills at the beginning of the program? None

A Look Back

* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? If you're a communication major, no matter the concentration, you will definitely benefit from this course and trip. You explore every area of communication and get to see how it's really done in the real world.
