Summer 2015 Participant
My favorite part of this program was the opportunity to visit smaller, rural communities on the Atlantic coast where no to little English or Spanish was spoken and we could experience total language immersion with the locals.

Emily Marsh Carpenter, Summer 2012 Participant
Speaking with the locals in Miskitu was so rewarding, I was amazed at how much my group learned after a few weeks. A lot of our lingual success came from the willingness of Bilwi residents to help us learn! Walking through the grocery store, or even through our hotel, people were excited to quiz us or teach us new phrases.

Summer 2019 Participant
I'm so surprised at how much my language skills have increased because of studying abroad. At first I was so nervous to talk to anyone outside of our group, because I had never been to Latin America before and I was the only student in the group who had never been. I relied on my peers for social interaction with the locals because I was so afraid of messing up in conversation. However, once I decided to step out of my comfort zone and talk to people, both my Spanish and Miskitu became exponentially better. You can only learn so much on paper, real life conversations are the true teacher.
