Program Reviews:
Michael P Garrett, Summer 2013 Participant
I think the most rewarding part of the program and the biggest thing I took away from it was the improvement in my Spanish-speaking skills. At KU, in our Spanish classes we use a lot of vocabulary and sentences to form intellectual thoughts and analyze literature. Obviously, that doesn't come in handy when trying to call a cab, order a meal or try to talk to someone on the street. To me, this was very difficult. A lot of basic conversational skills that I learned I hadn't used since high-school Spanish. After the summer program in Buenos Aires, I think my conversation has improved immensely. Living with a host mom that knew absolutely no English definitely helped me grow as a Spanish speaker.

Seeing a real difference in my Spanish knowledge and understanding is one of the most rewarding things of the program.

Summer 2012 Participant
It is important to try to speak as much with your host family and local people that you meet, even though it is tempting to only speak in English to the people in your group. I would also recommend that people spend some time walking around on their own to develop a sense of orientation and get to know their neighborhood really well.
