Best Decision of my Life

Studying with API in Granada, Spain was easily the best decision of my life. The program went above and beyond to help each one of us to make our time abroad meaningful and fun. My host mom was the sweetest lady who helped me improve my Spanish immensely. I made friends on my trip that I know will last a life time. I would not change anything about my experience. Thank you API for making it so great!

fun semester

Be aware that Granada is full of Americans- not the best place for cultural immersion. Lots of courses to choose from, good matching of homestays. Program excursions could use more structured activities instead of free time, but excursions included places as nice as Paris! Program staff available, but you had to seek them out. Smaller program than other commercial carriers, better homestays than my classmates in all programs.

API Granada Fall 2011 - Best Study Abroad Ever

Don't study abroad with API if you hate fun. If you don't go with API Granada, you need to rethink your life. You will make dozens of new best friends, learn a language, and become aware of a whole new world.

Academics:
I had great professors who really seemed to care about our education. Antxon was the best! Some people thought that the classes should have been harder, but I think we still learned a ton, and less homework meant more time for real world experiences.

Living Situation:
I had a host mom, but I was in an apartment with six students, both Spanish and American. It was an interesting situation, and it was great to have Spanish roommates to talk to.

Cultural Immersion:
As long as you get out and do anything, you will feel like a Spaniard within a week. API does a great job organizing events to get you familiar with the area as well.

Program Administration:
Our program administrators were like family. They were always there for us, and I can't say enough about how great they were.

Health and Safety:
I walked around alone at all hours of the night and never had any trouble. I never heard of any incidents beyond a bit of pickpocketing either.

Social Life:
You will have more fun than you thought possible.

I have nothing bad to say about API.

I studied abroad with API in Granada, Spain in the Spring of 2012. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I honestly cannot think of one thing that I was unhappy with. API did everything they could to go above and beyond your expectations for studying abroad. If for any reason students had problems with anything... their host families, school, getting used to the culture, traveling... API always did everything in their power to fix it, and in a timely manner. They were so personal and got to know every single person in the program. I don't have a single bad thing to say about API.

Academics:
The academic level could have been a little bit more challenging, but overall my Spanish improved tremendously just by living in a foreign country.
