Overall Experience
I learned so much about myself, Thailand, and SE Asia throughout my experience abroad. I have never established such deep connections with friends so quickly. It was very easy to find home in Chiang Mai. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and it completely opened my eyes to a different way of life and was such a positive chan... - Eugene Lang College - The New School for Liberal Arts View Entire Review
I learned to be a kinder person. From living in Chiang Mai for a semester and traveling to a few countries in Southeast Asia, I was met with a kindness and unselfishness I have never witnessed before. I learned to listen, say yes and treat others with kindness and laughter. I learned to walk slow, embrace the heat and always smi... - Cornell University View Entire Review
From my experience, I learned independence. I learned how to live in a culture so different from my own and love it for all that it is. I gained a sense of self being able to thrive in another country, and I will forever be thankful for that. Thailand became a home away from home and the level of comfort I felt in Chiang Mai is ... - University of Georgia View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Thailand - Semester in Chiang Mai
As you read in my title, I am a better friend, daughter and person because of Chiang Mai. It taught me more about myself than I realized I had to learn. The patience and cultural appreciation you learn to have for the people and the country come back to the states with you and I truly think they will make you a better person bec... - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review
Where do I start? I learned about the costs of Western influence and the tourism industry, the effects of a long-term refugee crisis and the dynamics of a Buddhist state. I also learned a lot about my personal travel style and tested my socializing skills. - Salem College View Entire Review

I learned so much about travelling and going with the flow. Things don't always turn out perfect but you have to make them work. I gained so much confidence to travel because of my time in Thailand. - Iowa State University View Entire Review
TEAN really makes sure that you get comfortable in your new environment, and that means living with the locals. You learn so much more this way, about the Asian culture and way of life. It was absolutely worthwhile, I would go back in a heartbeat. - Emmanuel College (Massachusetts) View Entire Review
Too many things to mention, I gained an understanding of Thai culture as well as asian culture in general, an appreciation for spicy food, amazing friends that I know will be life long friends, an understanding of Asian Relations and politics. It was absolutely worthwhile. - College of Charleston View Entire Review

As I learned about Thailand and Asia in general I unexpectedly learned almost just as much about myself, my culture, and my home country. I learned to go with the flow and lets thing happen as they do. - Colorado State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Thailand - Semester in Chiang Mai
My spring semester in Thailand through The Education Abroad Network truly could not have been better. I learned about Thai culture and customs, met the most wonderful, genuine and kind Thai people, became familiar with the Southeast Asia region, made lifelong friendships with other international students from Cambodia, Vietnam a... - University of Wisconsin - Madison View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Thailand - Semester in Chiang Mai
Going abroad with TEAN to Chiang Mai completely changed my life. If I could stay there forever, I would have. I learned all about Thai culture and life and even more about myself. From the Thai's, I learned a new way of life and a new path to happiness. My mind was opened to the diversity that fills our world and I learned not t... - George Washington University View Entire Review
My heart seriously aches to be back in Chiang Mai. Every day I think about the amazing experiences I had, the fabulous people I met and the way my life is forever changed for the better. Previous to boarding the plane to Thailand, I had never been to Asia before. Honestly, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Little did... - Pennsylvania State University - University Park View Entire Review
It was 1000% worthwhile! I learned how to live with a person from a different background, learned how to speak a foreign language and live/navigate my way through a foreign city. I learned incredible things about a part of the world that I had no prior knowledge of and was exposed to some of the most breathtaking natural landsca... - College of Charleston View Entire Review
TEAN's courses expanded on topics rarely discussed in the United States and utilized the country around it for hands-on lesson, making going to class enjoyable and exciting. Not only am I more aware of different cultures and lifestyles, but more accepting and willing to try new ideas. I am now able to reflect on so many wonder... - High Point University View Entire Review
November 07, 2018 The Land Of Smiles!
Through this program, I was able to step out of my comfort zone and experience a one in a lifetime opportunity! One of my favorite memories from this program would be the one week home-stay we did in the beginning of the semester. Despite not knowing the language, I truly developed a relationship with my family that I'll never f... - Pace University View Entire Review
While studying abroad I learned skills I cannot learn anywhere else. I learned how to adapt to a new environment, language, and culture. I gained valuable intercultural communication skills and learned new perspectives on global issues. I also gained personal growth. I was able to break out of my comfort zone while abroad and I'... - Miami University View Entire Review

I'm a peer advisor in Pace's Study Abroad office, and what I always tell my students is that the number one thing I got, and that people tend to get from study abroad, is personal growth. I became so much more open and willing to do things and expand my horizons, and I was more adventurous than I've ever been before in my life. ... - Pace University View Entire Review
September 13, 2016 Best Semester Of My Life
It was very much so worth while I learned so much about myself and I also learned so much about a beautiful culture very different from the culture in the US - Xavier University View Entire Review
A lot of interpersonal skills. Communication skills. Cultural sensitivity and diversity. Yes worthwhile. - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
There is so much beauty in this world that is so unknown to people. We all rush through school to get to the real world of working at some fancy place where we hopefully make a lot of money, but is that really living? Traveling is about learning about yourself, stepping out of your comfort zone, making the best of friends, and ... - Michigan State University View Entire Review
I wouldn't trade my experience for the world. I discovered that outside my comfort zone was where actual comfort and happiness was, that people have an amazing capacity for compassion even for strangers, and that doing anything other than what makes me happy is a waste of time. - University of Kentucky View Entire Review
During my time in Chiang Mai, I had so many experiences I will never forget. The city and its people were absolutely beautiful, and TEAN’s program allowed me to experience the beauty of Thailand in an incredibly authentic and life-changing way. After we arrived at the airport, we were brought to a beautiful resort in one of t... - Gustavus Adolphus College View Entire Review

I learned how much you can learn when you travel if you make yourself open to new experiences. I also gained a love for Southeast Asia! - University of Redlands View Entire Review
It was beyond worthwhile! I think I became a little more relaxed having been in such a lay back culture. It has also broadened me being in a culture very different from my own. I think I am more open to different ways of thinking. I've also gained lifelong friends from around the world. - Siena College View Entire Review
Past Review Above And Beyond
My experience was above and beyond what I expected of the program. I have made friends from all walks of life that I will cherish forever. I now have a more complete understanding of the direction I am heading in for the future as I pursue a degree in International Development. I was able to take advantage of once in a lifetime ... - Clemson University View Entire Review
