Best Way to Learn Another Language

Being forced to use Spanish to communicate with everyone was probably the best thing that could have happened to me. This program didn't group me together with other study-abroad student so I was the only native english speaker in my school/home. I wouldn't have been able to speak in English even if I wanted to, and I think that this is the reason I was able to learn so much. My host family was amazing, the food was incredible, and the friends I made/fiestas I went to were unforgettable. If you want to learn Spanish or are considering this program my advice would be to just do it because you won't regret it.

My Sophomore Year Abroad in Asturias, Spain

When I turned 15, I applied to spend a year among the rich Spanish culture of Asturias through the program of NACEL International. Once accepted, I knew I would be spending the next 10 months studying all core curriculum in Spanish, living with a non-English speaking family and experiencing all parts of another culture firsthand. What I never could have suspected was all the love and support I would receive from both my host family and my coordinators at NACEL, who held my hand in times of need, and were always there to help. Once this life changing experience came to a close, I returned to my country a more well rounded person, a person educated in another language and a person who learned from themselves by counting on others. I now have a heart that is split between two oceans, and because of the people and experiences I came in contact with during my year abroad, I can guarantee success, progress and prosperity in my future.

What would you improve about this program?
I would have benefited from meeting the other students that were accepted into the same program.

Experiencia perfecta

First of all the family was super nice and the food just amazing! So thank to my my host family for making my experience so amazing. And thank you to Nacel for connecting us. I had been waiting a long time for this and it was perfect. My first class went well as I could understand everything which was encouraging from the start. I am now 100% fluent in Spanish but I have to admit it was not always easy... Be prepared to make some integration and cross culture efforts. But appart from that everything was perfect. I feel really happy to have taken this experience abroad. Do it if you can !
