Summer 2013 Participant
My favorite part of the program was being surrounded by Spanish. I already loved the language before going to Argentina, and being surrounded by it both put me outside of my comfort zone and also made it much easier to learn. I was eager to improve my speaking abilities so I took any opportunity I was given to practice Spanish. By the time I returned home, the thing I missed the most was having so many opportunities to speak Spanish. I began speaking around the house even though none of my family had no idea what I was saying. As for the excursions, my two favorite were going to El Tigre and getting Tango lessons. At the Milonga, it was great seeing people dancing and for them it was just a normal part of their life. On a Thursday evening the thing the decide to do is go dance tango with their partner. I loved dreaming that this could someday be a normal part of my life. El Tigre was a very beautiful escape from the city. Although it took a while to get there, the day spent on the river was peaceful and the asado was fantastic. It was a very relaxing day.

I learned that you can experience Buenos Aires by walking around the city until you stumble upon something that looks interesting. Then you can ask someone about it and take advantage of the opportunity it provides, whatever that may be.

My favorite part of this program was how each student was capable of thoroughly interacting with the culture, while simultaneously broadening their language skills due to the enthusiastic staff that KU provided us with and how we were given the opportunity to travel and immerse ourselves in the diverse environments.
