SPI China, Thank you!

I went on this program with excitement but also high nerves. SPI really created an amazing program for us to feel comfortable in a country so different from home (US). The group was smaller than I thought it would be, but we ended up bonding very quickly. The 8 of us really connected because of the cultural adaptation we were experiencing. We now consider each other family . I will never forget my Chinese immersion with SPI! Thank you!

What would you improve about this program?
I wish there were more students but in the end it did not matter :)

Study Abroad - China

SPI offered a unique and extraordinary combination of a homestay experience in a city that is small enough for students to learn their way around town on their own, along with morning classes taught by excellent teachers and afternoon culture events. A housing problem came up the week before the program began and while I spent the week wondering and worrying, the terrific SPI staff handled the problem and set up the homestay we were counting on. They earned my respect and the highest recommendation for both coming through with an excellent homestay experience as well as for running the overall program with language and culture experiences.
