Studying abroad offers so much freedom and independence. My favorite part of this program would have to be how flexible the coursework was to my current language level. It accommodated my first year skills as well as those of a second year student from New York. It was difficult enough as to be challenging, but not so difficult that it was frustrating. The professor was very qualified (spoke 4 languages fluently) and super nice to boot. The host family was some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. In general, I would say that the people were my favorite part of the program.

The program is wonderful! I especially enjoyed the organized trips which gave me an opportunity to see more of the country. The professors are also amazing, so helpful and available!

The most rewarding part of the program was speaking to the natives or host family. Everyone aside from the professor or other students usually spoke only some English, so being capable of complementing the host family or speaking to a native about simple subjects in another language feels like a great application of the skills that you had been studying for years. The mere act of living in a foreign country feels like an accomplishment.

The most rewarding part of the program was to see my improvement in the language, both in my understanding and in my communicating. Receiving some lectures in Croatian was a very rewarding challenge!

The ability to learn for a portion of the day and immediately after have access to both the language and people who spoke it was beyond rewarding.
