Greenheart Travel Reviews
My host family was great!!

Go for it! Don't count on anyone else to make your experience great. YOU are in charge of your actions, so you should do as much as you can to enjoy your program! Also, don't have unreasonable expectations. You will have the adventure of a lifetime, so stay positive even if things aren't going exactly as you had imagined. I'm happy to share my blog post with anyone who is interested. I have a lot of my opinions and experiences documented there.
Thank you, Greenheart!
Semester in Finland
Submitted by Edward Lin - Zionsville, IN | July 13, 2018
My overall semester exchange program in Finland was excellent. For me, I found my experience was vastly enriched by my ability to speak the language (Finnish) from day one of my exchange. Although my level of the language was then still rudimentary, getting a head start by being able to make ask basic questions and have conversations helped me make friends, connect better, and improve faster.
I loved our local coordinator in Finland, as they did a fantastic job of organizing the exchange while helping me meet other local exchange students.
If you are thinking of doing this program, my advice is to learn the local language by speaking and surrounding yourself in it! It doesn’t matter if you make lots of mistakes. It will probably seem scary at first to speak in a language you don’t fully understand, but that is the only way to guarantee you won’t fail to improve!
Greenheart was so great!

Greenheart was so great! I wouldn't want to experience this with any other organization. Greenheart gave me a sense of freedom that other programs were sort of strict on. I felt as if, as long as I kept up on my work, I was free to explore and learn my surroundings at my own pace. The support is also great. Your in-country director is there when you need them and checks up on the participant, but not in an overwhelming way. It's just a great experience in general.
Make the most of it! Try new foods, explore new places, get out of your comfort zone!! Really get involved in your surroundings. Go to as many cultural activities as you can. Cultural parades, festivals, etc. Check out the many museums. Just make the most out of your journey. I loved living with the host family! It made a greater impact in learning the language, culture, and country.
I would have loved some advice on how to get the ball rolling with paper lessons (writing, reading, grammar papers, etc.) My host siblings were close to my age, which made it a little awkward to me when telling them to do a lesson. I also would have like a little advice on what levels of English and topics to teach. Other than that, the pre-departure support and especially the webinar were awesome.
I think this program is amazing the way it is. I don't see any need for improvement!
I felt prepared, pre departure support was amazing!

Greenheart provided a safe and enjoyable experience and I felt like an individual that they cared about (safety, enjoyable and comfort).
My advice if you do this program is to enjoy every minute and keep an open mind about everything! You never know what will be your favourite memory.
Thank you so much for such an amazing opportunity. I really appreciated everything I experienced. I made unbreakable friendships that I will carry with me forever!
Thank you for such a life changing, amazing experience!

I liked Greenheart over any other company because they don't send hundreds of students to one country, the staff and alumni are very talkative, open, and close to you at every point of the experience, and they know the exact region of the country you are going to. Nothing is uncertain with Greenheart. They have every questioned detail planned out. I always felt certain and safe.
If you're thinking about studying abroad in Spain, be completely open to learn a new way of life, new things about yourself, and change in every part of your life. It might be challenging or frustrating at times, but at the end you will be amazed at how much this all has shaped you and made you a better, stronger, more confident person. I liked getting to live in a new culture, learn a totally different way of life, and challenge myself by learning a new language the most. It was so eye opening and incredible to see how different life is across the ocean. It made me learn what is important in my life, how I need to change things in my life, and allowed me to know myself even more than before.
Thank you for such a life changing, amazing experience Greenheart! It really changed my life by allowing me to learn so many things about myself that I didn't know before. I have a better understanding of the world, who I am, and what I want to do in my life. I plan to apply to travel with you all again!
