I had previously participated in a semester-long homestay program through my university, and I was interested in participating in a similar experience again. However, I couldn't spend another semester away, so I decided to look into summer programs. Linguistic Horizons was the first program that I found, and any other program I found afterward paled in comparison. There wasn't much money that I would be paying that seemed excessive.
Nicole promised to find housing with speakers of Spanish, find an accredited internship in a Spanish-speaking environment, as well as a conversation course. I was definitely skeptical at first to pay someone to find an internship for me, but in the end, it definitely was worth it; I had to put little to no legwork into finding and applying to a ton of internships like one normally would have to do, a process exacerbated by not being in the country itself and by being in a foreign language.
Nicole was extremely receptive and communicative during every step of the process.
