"Over the course of my summer in Spain, my ability to communicate in the language and understand the culture grew day by day. It was a real eye-opening experience as to how many differences there are in the world, but also how many small similarities are shared between those oceans apart. I have only great things to say about the country, program, experience, and I would highly recommend study abroad to every student."
