Autumn C Rodriguez, Summer 2017 Participant
I was able to put myself in the shoes of an ELL. Being in an environment that was new and unfamiliar was pretty intimidating and I have so much more respect for people who up and move from what they know to start a new life.

Katherine Lynn Schlichter, Summer 2012 Participant
I think the most valuable thing I learned was actually being on my own in a foreign country, now I feel like I could conquer the world by how much more independent I am after going on this trip! Also in education all I learned about last year in class was how to teach to all different cultures and types of students. Actually getting to go emerge myself fully in another culture by living in their country and experiencing how they live and learn first handedly was the best way to sum up everything I learned this past year and help me fully understand the importance of it. The best way for future teachers to learn and grow is by hands on experience, so this was the absolute best way to help me grow into the best teacher I can be.

I loved this program! My favorited part was having the opportunity to teach abroad. It was such a wonderful experience to work with the students, learn about a different educational system, and also gain the perspective of what an international language learner may feel.
