Bridging the Cultures

As a girl who is a first generation from Pakistani Immigrants, I was raised with the best of both cultures in America. I learned to love both American burgers and Pakistani curries. Having the opportunity to spend three weeks in Barcelona to learn more about soccer, a sport that I had already grew up loving and started to follow the Spanish La Liga since 2012, allowed me to learn how the local Barcelonians and Catalan people live. The locals are all very helpful when it came to getting directions back to my apartment my first week in Barcelona to practicing the Spanish that I was picking up along the way. Being able to try the local cuisine like croquettes, and seafood with my roommates and some of the other girls from the 4- and 6-week programs was really nice. It was also really cool to learn not just how the Catalan people wanted their independence for the past half century or so as well as how the 1992 Summer Olympics as allowed the entire country to unite for a major event and bring a lot of infrastructure to come to Barcelona to make it what it is today. Having also seen Sagrada Familia, Port Olimpic, La Rambla, Plaza Catalunya, La Barceloneta, Park Guell, Casa Batllo, Casa Mila and countless other historical sites allowed me to like the city a little bit better even though as a Madridista, I still preferred the optional weekend visit to Madrid that I took with about 22 other people.

Fun in Barcelona!

Awesome experience, highly recommend! I would definitely return back. Super thankful for the opportunity. Great teachers and great administration. Fun classes and quick walk to school. Only suggestion would be supplying the living accommodations in cleaner conditions.

Breathtaking Barcelona

I had a wonderful time exploring Barcelona and immersing myself in its cuisine and culture. Living with a homestay allowed me to become conversational in Spanish and truly understand what it's like to be a local. It was unbelievable how much I learned and experienced in such a short period of time. I'd highly recommend taking a summer abroad in this amazing city :~)

The best month of my life

I love the United States and studying abroad was something I always wanted to try but was scared too. Being able to communicate with the staff and just seeing how helpful they were was a very good thing. Prague is an amazing city and I would gladly move here based on my experiences, if the language wasn't so hard to learn!

Prague Summer 2017 AIFS

Such a fantastic program! The staff is very helpful and they provide great trips and activities to help you get to know the city and surrounding countries! The dorms were nice and there are many places around the area to get food or anything you might need! It's a short tram or metro ride to the city center to class! I would recommend this trip to anyone!
