The classes are challenging. You enroll in classes alongside native speakers and are expected to put in the same amount of work or more. The first week or so, I didn't understand any of the lecture. But professors are very supportive and they are willing to spend a lot of time working with you. By the end of this program, your Spanish will improve dramatically. Seeing my Spanish grow was the most rewarding thing. By the end of my semester, I was understanding the entire lecture and could participate in class in a way I couldn't even have imagined at the beginning of the semester. You get to see your own growth.

I learned that being adaptable and having patience is crucial to thriving on a study abroad program. My first week in the city was extremely difficult, but eventually learned how to navigate life in Argentina.

I improved my language skills substantially, through living with a host family but also through taking classes that were completely in Spanish.
