Unbelievable, live changing, mind opening, most fun I have ever had

The staff and teachers are one of the best things about the program. Everyone is very friendly. You are right in the middle of the city and nightlife in Spain is unreal! If you do this program, you will love every minute of it and never want to leave.

Academics:
The course are easy to get an "A" in as long as you go to class. Classes are fun, we rarely had class in the classroom. We would go for tours of the city and to different locations to see history and art and language, not read about it.

Living Situation:
You have to share a room and bathroom with another person and share an apartment (kitchen and living area) with 8-10 other students. Everything is newly redone and very nice. You are located right in the center of the city and classrooms are in the same building that you live in, which makes getting to class that much easier.

Cultural Immersion:
You will live with tons of American students. This is nice because you all become very close, but you have to put yourself out there and go off on your own a little bit to get a truly Spanish experience.

Program Administration:
All the professors and staff become your family while you are there. They are some of the nicest people I have ever met and they are 100% concerned about you. They want you to enjoy your classes, and all other aspects of your life in Spain.

Health and Safety:
make sure you keep all your belongings on you and be aware of the people around you. no one is going to attack you, but they may try to pick-pocket you. get a purse that zips and keep phones and money in your front pocket

Social Life:
night life is a big deal. large clubs do not open until 2:00 in the morning, so be ready for long nights
