What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
My experience was 100% worthwhile. I had the best time of my life and learned a lot.I learned how to get acclimated to a new culture and got to explore a new country. TEAN is amazing and helps you every step of the way. They made studying abroad even more fun by offering super awesome weekend/semester break excursions as well as various activities throughout the semester.
