Program Reviews:
Summer 2018 Participant
I learned that I was a lot more independent and capable than I thought. I was nervous about being on my own in a foreign country, but I quickly found out that my previous Spanish education had prepared me very well, and it was easier to adjust to a different culture than I had thought.

Priya Jaya Hebbar, Summer 2017 Participant
Living with a host family was the most rewarding experience of the program. I was able to fully immerse into the culture and create a strong bond with the family.

Jenna Rose Haith, Summer 2017 Participant
I learned to keep your belongings as close to you as possible and always be aware of the people by you. Especially at the bars, clubs and on the beach. Learn how to use the public transportation system. It will help you get around the city faster than walking! Even though you can pretty much walk anywhere in Barcelona. If you ignore the vendors then they will not bother you. Don't be afraid to use your spanish skills on the streets, even if they aren't great. It can be really fun! Don't be afraid to try different foods. You will be surprised at what you might like! Your phone doesn't always work, so make sure you know your way around or know how to ask for help! 6 weeks goes by so fast, so make the best of it! Europe is amazing and it is a whole other world over there. Very different from America. Always carry a water bottle and fill it up every chance you get because water is not free nor are restrooms! Ice is very hard to find in Barcelona, along with air conditioning. Pack very few clothes because you will wear the same thing every day. Also, leave space in your luggage because you will shop.. a lot. Don't bring any jewelry, you will just lose it. Also, I did not wear any makeup while abroad. You don't need it. Save up as much money as you can, because I guarantee that you will spend it all. Stay in Barcelona for a few weekends but you should also travel to other places in Europe.
