Program Reviews:
Summer 2015 Participant
The classes and the excursions allowed for a lot of learning -- we got to really go in depth into the culture and sights and meet a lot of people while doing it. The home stay was also very beneficial. It was much better than having to stay in a hotel or something; being able to live with a family and interact with them really helped to boost language understanding and show some in depth details of German culture.

Edward Joseph McDermott, Summer 2018 Participant
The single most rewarding part about the program was getting the opportunity to meet and make 20 new friends from both KU and the University of Arkansas who I wouldn't have become such good friends with otherwise. Additionally, staying with a host family and speaking the language every day helped my abilities tremendously and prepared me for the rest of my time in Germany.

William Spencer Klaviter, Summer 2017 Participant
One point that I would strongly make about this program is the idea that you shouldn't be afraid to try new things and everything that you have learned so far. Yes, you will make mistakes and laugh at yourself quite a few times, but by doing this, you are able to gain not only confidence in what you are learning, but you are able to also help further your skills and experience much more than you ever would be able to in just a classroom.
