It would have been nice to have some excursions provided outside of the country (even for additional cost).

They had a number of phenomenal excursions outside of Sevilla included, but I would have liked to see more "intercambio" events. I found it difficult to meet Spanish friends and I think having cultural events with Spaniards would have helped.
LauraAge: 19-24FemaleCanadaUniversity of TorontoFantastic Opportunity11/14/2014How could this program be improved?
This program could improve by training volunteers better, giving them resources in order to teach and grade as a regular teacher at SENA would. Informing volunteers about uniform policies, attendance, and how to grade students on Sofia Plus would help tremendously. Having a very good regional coordinator is also vital for the success of the program.

It would be nice if there were more families that participated in home stays and a more thorough matching process.

I wish more students would branch out and engage in Italian night life more. The American bars and clubs are very frequented by students.
