Summer 2014 Participant
Great way to learn Hindi quickly and rapidly.
Jenna Crusinberry, Summer 2014 Participant
Although school was difficult, it challenged me and in the end was very rewarding.
Jenna Crusinberry, Summer 2014 Participant
Getting to experience all of India; the people, food, culture, language, etc. I can't pick one specific thing because I loved it all! I would have to say that where we lived was absolutely incredible. Waking up early to read, drink chai, and watch the sunset overlooking the Himalayas is something I will never forget.
