My Spanish ability has increased tremendously. Being able to travel around Europe was the experience of the lifetime. Definitely worthwhile to delay graduation. - University of Wisconsin - Platteville View Entire Review

Past Review Spain...Why Not?
I learned so many new things about myself and the Spanish culture while I was abroad in Sevilla, Spain. But the one thing that surprised me the most was how much of the Spanish language I really did know. By the end of the first week I felt completely confident in talking to the locals. I made great friends from across the Unite... - University of Wisconsin - Platteville View Entire Review
I improved my Spanish knowledge and confidence with my Spanish-speaking abilities! I experienced unique history of Seville, Spain! This experience was definitely worthwhile! - University of Wisconsin - Platteville View Entire Review
I gained a lot of knowledge of the language and a better understanding of how it feels to live in a culture completely different than my own. It was definitely worthwhile - University of Wisconsin - Whitewater View Entire Review
My time abroad was definitely worthwhile. Living in another country was a phenomenal experience. I loved Europe more than I can put into words. I spent a month traveling around Europe after the program ended by myself, and that was probably the best month of my life, at least so far. - University of Wisconsin - Platteville View Entire Review

Everyone told me that studying abroad would change my life. It’s not that I didn’t believe them; I just truly didn’t understand the impact this experience would have on me. My experience would not have gone as smoothly or been as incredible without the kindness of the staff at SAIIE. They were there to help us every step of t... - High Point University View Entire Review
I discovered that I have a long way to go in learning Spanish but that I can do it and everyone hits barriers while learning a new language. I feel that this was a very worthwhile experience and it helped me learn and grow as a person. - University of Wisconsin - River Falls View Entire Review

100% worthwhile. Appreciated the opportunity to learn about Spain's culture, and specific things I'll miss are my host family, using the Euro after never using it before, using 24-hour time instead of AM/PM, being able to travel so easily, hearing Spanish all the time, and walking everywhere - University of Wisconsin - River Falls View Entire Review
That I can communicate with locals, I just have to have the confidence in my ability to speak Spanish. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
I gained experiences of being on my own and living with complete strangers. I improved my Spanish speaking skills, I realized there is so much out there to see. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
I learned about myself and how many chances I would take, to me this was a very important thing. I had the time of my life, and I wouldn't take back this experience if I had the choice. - University of Wisconsin - Platteville View Entire Review

I have improved my Spanish speaking skills immensely, and am also comfortable speaking to people I don't know (in two languages!) - University of Wisconsin - Platteville View Entire Review
I gained the traveling aspect alone there and back can be very difficult, however, each day there was something new to be learned and go through while staying with the family, meeting new people, or exploring the town by yourself. - Marymount University View Entire Review
Traveling was such a great experience. - High Point University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with UW-Platteville Education Abroad at the Spanish-American Institute of International Education (SAIIE)
I had three goals before I went to Spain: to improve at Spanish, to improve at soccer, and to experience and see many new things. In the four months and six days that I was abroad, I went from a high school level of Spanish to nearly fluent, and certainly conversational. My rapid growth in comprehension of the Spanish language... - Christopher Newport University View Entire Review

I gained a new experience on life and the cultures of other people. It was well worth my time and I would love to do it again. - Bethel University View Entire Review
I learned more about myself and what I want from any future experiences abroad. This program was not worth the money. - University of Wisconsin - River Falls View Entire Review
