I found the practice in Spanish to be the most rewarding. Learning a second language has opened new possibilities for my future, and helped be experience the culture in Spain in a more authentic way. I also found the course covering Sustainability which I took over the summer to be a eye opening experience in the amount of care we need to take to preserve the resources and environment of our planet. Especially in the modern day, an understanding of how humanity's activities are affecting the planet is becoming crucial in industry and everyday life.
My host university made the program very cooperative to travel throughout the program. For this reason, I was able to travel to many other countries in Europe, and experience many cultures in Europe.
