Program Reviews:
Scott Allen Friesen, Academic Year 2014 Participant
My favorite part of this program was simply being able to fully integrate myself into a foreign culture totally different from that of my own. I was constantly surrounded by so many walks of of life and the knowledge learned from these people and their cultures was invaluable.

Matthew E Styers, Spring 2015 Participant
The relationships I have made over the course of this year are certainly the biggest gain I have made. Not only has the immersion of the program given my German an extra boost, but the friends that I now have from all parts of the globe, Taiwan, Japan, China, Singapore, Russia, Czech Republic, Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, and more.

Using my German almost everyday!

Nicholas Peter Konowitz, Spring 2012 Participant
The greatest part of this program is that it allowed for me to meet so many different people from so many different countries. It also gave me the opportunity to truly use my German. I was able to make so many close friends while using German as are primary langauge! This program allows for the individual to decide how much language immersion he or she wants. Their are plenty of people speaking english, spanish, German and many other languages therefor people of all levels can benefit. It is truly a great program!
