Travelled to Germany to improve the language. This experience helped me to mature and most
importantly to know a new culture and make friends that I hope will be for all my life. The early days were a bit hard but the welcome from my host family was so good it helped me to adapt quickly. At school my mates were always special and we even could agree to go to school by bike. I sincerely hope someday to return.
Great times in Germany!

I can speak about everything with my host family. We do a lot of activities together. To love with
a family is necessary to improve the German skills.
I have started to speak a bit more and be more confident. There are still subjects at school that are
difficult to understand (Maths and Biology), but it’s better than at the beginning. I feel better at
school, I got accustomed.
First weeks in Spain

Dear Nacel, I'm doing great and so far things couldn't be going any better! My first week at school went pretty well (besides the fact I couldn't understand half of what my teachers were saying). My host sister Marian has been a big help to me with the language and she's also helped me meet a few friends while my language is still pretty lacking. As far as my relationship with my host family I feel like it is going great, they are really active in making sure that I'm happy/healthy. The only area that is still not going fantastically is my Spanish. I know it's only been a month (3 weeks for actually really speaking Spanish), but I thought I could've made a bit more progress in this month than I have. Nevertheless so far things are going great and I can't complain about anything so far.
Thank you Nacel!

My name is Danny and I started my program with Nacel a month ago! School is going great it's been two days and I've started to make friends, the professors are all nice and understand that I'm going to need some time to succeed in their classes which I am understanding more and more of. It was definitely a tough couple of weeks and I'm sure it will continue to be a challenge but I'm starting to settle in and I'm happy that I am here for the year. Thank you for everything!
Lovely country, beautiful experience

Being an exchange student has been a wonderful experience. I’m really happy; I’m enjoying myself and I’m learning so many things. My host family is really nice, I get along really well!!!!
I’m doing well at school too, my Italian is improving every day, and I also have made a lot of friends. At the beginning I was kind of scared because everybody told that the first couple of months of this experience are hard because you get to feel lonely or homesick, but it has been different to me because since the day I arrived I have been really happy, and the time has been going so fast that I would like to stay longer.
NACEL has been great too, they have supported me all the time. Every day of this experience has been unforgettable!! The fact that you are away from home, experimenting a new culture, a new language gives you the opportunity to grow.
