More than worthwhile

I had the most incredible experience studying abroad with Spanish Studies Abroad. Before going into this, I was nervous with my Spanish speaking ability and living with a host family. After a week or two, I felt completely relived with my decision to study abroad in Sevilla, with a host family. My family and locals were SO willing to help with my Spanish and encouraged you to try your best. My classes also helped with my Spanish and I learned a lot while being abroad including cultural immersion.

Fantastic winter study abroad in Havana, Cuba

I spent the month of January in Havana and had a life-changing experience. It was my first time spending more than a week abroad, and with the language barrier and notorious internet connectivity issues, the possibility of isolation was very real. Luckily, the program staff and fellow students made the experience easy and enjoyable.

I lived and studied Spanish in Havana for the month of January 2016. I lived, laughed, and ate with a Cuban family via homestay, and worked on my Spanish in 4-hour-a-day sessions at the University of Havana. Tom Millington, the program's director in Cuba, was kind, attentive, and diligent. He made sure the students had everything they needed to succeed.

The language immersion was very helpful – when not a single person, from taxi drivers to salespeople, speaks English, you have to orient yourself linguistically very quickly. Cuban Spanish is a bit more difficult to understand than dialects from other Latin American countries, which adds another step to the steep learning curve.

We were given an immense amount of freedom to explore but were never out of reach from the program staff. Marta María, Hugo, and Tom were all just a short phone call away, and at one point accompanied a student to the hospital as if they were their parent. They took care of us in Cuba as though we were their own. On my last day in Cuba Hugo spent three hours taking me to souvenir shops so I could find the perfect trinkets to take home. At one point, my roommates and I missed the departure for the bus and without even thinking Tom hired a cab and driver to follow the bus and ensure we made it to meet the group on the excursion.

The course equivalency work between my school and the Spanish Studies Abroad program staff was also seamless. In fact, the only hiccups I felt were from my school's sometimes-inept study abroad administrators.

I can't speak for other Spanish Studies Abroad programs, but if they're anything like the trip I took to Cuba then it will certainly be money well spent. I highly recommend this administrative team, the program, and the country.

As a direct result of my time in Cuba, I was able to apply for and be hired as a producer on the first international music festival in Havana. I returned two months later and helped produce the historic Diplo/Major Lazer concert for 400,000 fans on La Tribuna. It was amazing, and I was able to navigate Havana deftly and on my own as a direct result of my fantastic experience with Tom and Spanish Studies Abroad.

Please, take this trip!

The best semester I could have asked for

I absolutely loved my time in Sevilla. Before going, I had no idea it would have such an impact on my life, but looking back I couldn't imagine what my life would look like if I hadn't gone. Living and studying in another country not only broadened my look on life, but also helped me grow as a person. Spanish Studies Abroad was the perfect program for me because it was a medium size, which allowed me to be known on a personal level by my professors, while still interacting with a number of students from across the US. The classes challenged me, while still giving me the chance to explore the culture and travel, which proved to be just as beneficial as my classroom learning.

The Unknown

This is a very unique program that was very eye-opening. I did not know much about Cuba or the Cuban people. I quickly learned how amazing both things are and the love and similarities that Cuba and the United States share. Obviously there are going to be difference but I spent my time looking for refreshing similarities.

The ability to live and learn with the very helpful Cuban people, as well as experience and study in a world-class education and societal environment is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The program is run flawlessly from the academics to logistics. I plan on going back to Havana someday soon and I will without a doubt be in contact with the program director. I trust him with all things Havana and would recommend this to any college age student regardless of the level of Spanish fluency.

This month in Havana opened my eyes to new ideas and ways of thinking, but most importantly gave me a love and respect of this city of Havana and the sincere, amazing and gentle Cuban people.

A year of adventure in Sevilla!

I had the amazing opportunity of studying abroad for an entire academic year in Sevilla, Spain. From September through May I was living with an incredibly welcoming and loving host family in the center of town, taking classes completely taught in Spanish, and meeting new people while exploring the beautiful city. Sevilla is a great place to study abroad--the historical old town is incredibly beautiful and really feels like you are in Spain, the people are friendly and love to meet new American students, and the classes at the center are interesting. I improved my Spanish skills a lot and had the chance to travel to many new countries during my time abroad. Overall a fantastic experience that I would recommend to anyone!
