I got to know the Spanish culture, explore both Madrid and other major European cities during the semester. Travelling was really were I ended up enjoying myself the most.

I met a lot of different types of people, and that has made me even more accepting. I also feel that I understand another culture after living with my host family. I will always be in contact with them, and feel that I have a second home in Spain. I would study abroad again if I could! I absolutely loved it.

As cliche as it sounds, I learned a lot about myself (my studying habits, my partying habits, how social I am, what is important to me, my budgeting ability, how easy it is to make new friends, importance of religion to me, that I'm a homebody, I appreciate art and museums more than clubs and bars, etc). I gained visiting AMAZIN... - Fordham University View Entire Review

So worthwhile! I improved my Spanish, learned to be more independent, got exposed to different food and cultures, and had an experience of a lifetime. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I had a great internship at a small Spanish firm where I learned how businesses operate overseas. I also absorbed a lot of the Spanish culture, which I have brought back here to the States. Overall, I found the experience to be very worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and the culture of Spain, but also about my own country and perspectives on it from the outside. It was worthwhile. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review Living In Madrid
-how to immerse myself -how to take advantage of a situation -how to handle myself in a situation -how to travel independently -how to enjoy a city fully - Trinity University View Entire Review
I loved studying abroad, although I might choose a different university. I loved seeing new cultures and experiencing Spain daily. I felt like I could live there at the end and I miss Spain everyday. - Trinity University View Entire Review
It opened my mind up to new experiences and taught me that it is never too late to learn another language. - Fordham University View Entire Review
I became a much more independent and confident person after studying abroad. Living in a new city with a different language and culture pushed me out of my comfort zone. Traveling to many countries and cities with other students taught me to be more independent. Studying abroad was extremely worthwhile. - Tufts University View Entire Review
