Past participants have shared the following comments about their Oviedo experiences:

“The thing that improved the most for me was my confidence. I am more daring with my conversation in Spanish, and that leads me to improvement in all areas.”

“I enjoyed the variety of people I got to meet. I think I will be in touch with some of them. I really enjoyed the city, I can’t imagine a prettier and cleaner place to study.”

“My Spanish improved a lot. My vocabulary improved dramatically and the uses of the past and future tense have begun to become attainable in everyday conversations.”

“I have learned that it is not all about the USA. Foreign countries put a lot more emphasis on international relations than the States do. People are similar everywhere; culture and language differ.”
