Outstanding new program!

Our daughter decided to take a gap year before starting college. She was looking for the opportunity to expand her Spanish, get to know one city well and make great friends.

The Canvee team was exceptional! They treated her like their own family. Her host family made her feel right at home and really made an effort to make her comfortable.

Valencia will forever be one of her favorite places - it is beautiful, safe and just the right size to have independence. Her Spanish improved significantly. She fell in love with the people, the program and the city!

What was your funniest moment?
Our daughter was smart enough to go to bed after we'd see a couple of the statues burned in Fallas. We had a great location to watch a couple of the big ones burn... we waited for HOURS, thinking "it will be just a few more minutes"!
Pros
  • Safe - but really cool - city
  • Caring, engaged and fun team
  • great language development
Cons
  • Was small
