Granada, Spain

We attended many different sites, but the true cultural experience begins with your own exploration; go with friends not with the director. Try to see and experience as much of Granada as possible because the excursions will not reveal everything. Do not expect all of Granada to reveal itself to you as much of it lies behind the tourist areas of puerta real and plaza nueva. This is my advice to you.

How can this program be improved?
The staff needs changing.

My best summer trip ever

I loved going to school in the mornings but then being free the rest of the day to explore and hang out with friends. The cultural activities were also amazing and really helped me learn about Spain. My teachers were amazing- I still keep in touch with them on Facebook and they helped teach cultural things and made our conversational Spanish better. I met such amazing people on the trip and still talk to them all the time. There were so many fun things to do at night and during the day around Granada. The homestay was an amazing experience- I had the best host mom who was so welcoming and really wanted to help us learn about the culture and language. The trip is definitely one of my best summer memories.

How can this program be improved?
Classes for my group were not split up by ability level, so some people didn't learn many things. It worked out fine though because we focused on conversation and culture. If I had to change something though, I might split up people more on ability level.
