This program is amazing! I would recommend this program to any student learning Croatian. Studying and living abroad is a wonderful and unique experience.

The most rewarding part of the program was speaking to the natives or host family. Everyone aside from the professor or other students usually spoke only some English, so being capable of complementing the host family or speaking to a native about simple subjects in another language feels like a great application of the skills that you had been studying for years. The mere act of living in a foreign country feels like an accomplishment.

The most rewarding part of the program was to see my improvement in the language, both in my understanding and in my communicating. Receiving some lectures in Croatian was a very rewarding challenge!
