I gained a lot of perspective on possible careers and feel more confident in my german speaking. I now have friends not just in Germany but all over the world. It's definitely worthwhile if you can deal with sometimes being lonely and alone and being in uncomfortable situations. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile, I learned that I was able to adapt to a completely new situation and live in a place very different from my own. I learned that I can push myself to try and do new things and I gained the experience of a different culture and the cultures of places I traveled too. It wasn't easy and sometimes, especially ... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I learned how to adapt to any situation and make friends with people who I never thought I would be friends with before. I really have more of an open mind now to everything. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Also making an effort to eat with German local students who wouldnt change into English helped ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I gained so many new friendships, the ability to adapt to pretty much anything and a unique look into German culture that most people don't ever get to see. Freiburg is a wonderful place and I would choose to study there again over any other place in Germany. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I became much more independent from this time abroad. Spending a whole year away from home is a much different study abroad experience than most people will have; you truly feel like a part of the community while still holding on to your American roots. My German definitely improved, but I know if I would have made more of an ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

I made amazing, life-long friends and I learned a lot about different people. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
