Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of this program was experiencing the culture during the two weeks of travel around Germany.
Summer 2017 Participant
You learn so much not only about the German language and culture, but this trip made me so much independent. I learned how to get by in a different country without my parents there to hold my hand, and now I feel as if I could travel the world and be okay because of what I learned on this trip about travelling.
Katherine Camille Taylor, Summer 2013 Participant
I loved being able to stay with host families during this SLI program and completely immersing myself into the culture. I honestly feel like without this, even though I was abroad in Germany, my language wouldn't have improved nearly to the amount that it did. I also loved staying in one town and taking weekend trips to other big cities, instead of traveling around all at once in the beginning or end of the program.
