The experience. Having been to Spain before, it was fantastic to emerge myself in the culture for such an extended period of time. Getting to know and live with people from so any different countries and backgrounds was eye opening and made me want to stay for as long as I could.

Take the initiative to take what you learn in each class and apply it to what suits you. Abroad you have many opportunities to learn about culture, history, and language. Take those chances to take what you learn in the classroom and apply it in real life. Whether that be traveling to a city your teacher recommended, practicing your foreign language skills in day to day life, or diving into the culture and history of your host country; take the opportunity before you are abroad and during your time abroad to think about what you hope to get out of this experience, and how you hope to live that experience out.

My favorite part of the program was its location. Madrid is an incredibly exciting and diverse city. You are guaranteed to see people from all over the world, hear many different languages, and find just about every type of food just by walking through the streets. Madrid has an amazing nightlife, so there are always things to do and opportunities to meet new people.
