Aside from learning the language, culture and exploring I learned a lot about myself, I learned to be independent and to make good choices. After my time there I believe that when you go abroad you find yourself because you are in a new place, where you know no one, with no limitations what so ever. - Instituto Franklin-UAH View Entire Review
