Past Review It Was Worth It!
I guess I should start off by saying I did not have the typical study abroad experience. I struggled with a lot before and during the program.

I can't count what I gained from this program - myriad memories were formed, as well as a really great grasp on the Spanish language and culture. I wish I could've spent two semesters in Oviedo. - Temple University View Entire Review
I learned that I love America and its culture more than I'd thought. Spaniards in the north are fairly judgmental, but Oviedo is super cheap and has so many things to do... There are a myriad of bars and cafés and there's a train and bus station to travel around. - Temple University View Entire Review
I learned to say yes to every experience that might put me out of my comfort zone. - Temple University View Entire Review
It was incredibly worthwhile. I left Spain a confident Spanish speaker with a good cultural sense of the country. I made great friends, saw incredible nature and man made wonders, and had a blast. Absolutely would not trade my semester in Oviedo for anything. - Temple University View Entire Review
An incredible appreciation and deep love of Spanish culture. Drastic language improvement. Completely worthwhile. - Temple University View Entire Review

I gained a whole different perspective on the culture and it was totally worthwhile - Temple University View Entire Review

This off-the-beaten-path location provides students with a truly authentic experience. You'll not only improve your language skills, but you'll learn about the region's traditions, history and cuisine, and you might even learn to cook local dishes from your host family!As a program participant, you will be enrolled in the Cursos de Lengua y Cultura Españolas para Extranjerosprogram, which for 35 years has offered courses in Spanish language and culture to international students. An integral part of the university, the program offeres a broad range of courses, conducted in Spanish at the intermediate and advanced levels, and is housed at La Casa de las Lenguas, a center dedicated to language learning on the university's Campus de El Milán.
