"I learned how to speak Spanish. I had more than 4-5 years of high school and college level Spanish experience, but I was unable to hold a conversation. Now, I can claim I know Spanish and show it too. It was worth the hard work and I would do it over again if given the opportunity."

Past Review Cehs Allowed Me To Expand My Comfort Zone And Enhance My Spanish Language. Centro de Estudios Hispánicos de Segovia (CEHS): Semester Programs

"What I gained from the experience abroad was that I can do and be a lot more than I give myself credit for.

Past Review Spring 2015 University of Nicosia - Global Semesters: Nicosia - Semester in Europe (Multi-country)
