patience gratitude new level of fluency with Spanish - Eastern Illinois University View Entire Review
This experience changed my life and how I look at the world. As my first time living in a foreign country, it taught me that the American way of living is not universally considered the best way to live. I learned that I can live off of a lot less than what I'm used to, and that it's possible to be happy without all the luxuries... - University of Northern Iowa View Entire Review
