So Worth It

So I had never traveled out of the country before, but there I was, living in an apartment with three Spanish speaking roommates on the busiest street in the city when it comes to nightlife. When I was not in class, I would either be enjoying the food from some of the local restaurants or laying out on the beach wondering what I had done to deserve such a wonderful experience. La Coruna, Spain is a wonderful city with a great nightlife, sunny beaches, phenomenal food, and a welcoming culture. There is a coffee shop/bar that I would go to almost everyday and I ended up becoming relatively good friends with the staff. Since I was alone there for periods of time, it was great to be able to go to a place to grab a coffee or a beer and talk to someone. My time abroad there has been one of the most unique and defining experiences of my life and I look forward to being able to return there someday.

What would you improve about this program?
This is a newer program, so I think that if more people would join it, it could be a better experience but thats its only fault.

Study in La Coruna, Spain!

I can not express how incredible this experience was for me through Lingustic Horizons. I was at a point were I wanted to travel, I needed Spanish credit for college, and I didn't have much money. The program director went above and beyond to help me reach my goals. In turn, I had an incredible experience in such an extraordinary part of Spain within Basque Country, so green, lush, full of life and culture, right next to the beach, and the heart of Galicia. The food was brilliant, I can not talk enough about one of my professors, I've never learned so much in such a short period of time and I didn't even fully realize until later! It's also a great spot to travel around Spain and Europe after the 5 or 10 week program. It's a hidden gem and Linguistic Horizons helps you get there!

best program

This is a great program. My Spanish improved tremendously both from the full immersion and the university classes. The school and the city felt very familiar and it was refreshing to be in a non touristy area. I had traveled to Spain before, and the bigger cities were very hussle and bussle. Coruña had a more laid back atmosphere that made it feel like a second home. Linguistic horizons was very informative about what to expect from the city and how to get around. The ciudad vieja, or old city, part of town was my favorite place since it was close to the beautiful port and had an a type of renaissance charm. I felt very safe walking around town and taking the buses and did not have much trouble with bus schedules. Although I did learn to always be a few minutes early for the bus. Even though the food was different, it was pretty good. As a vegan, I thought it would be difficult to eat out and find options to fit my diet, but I was able to eat almost everywhere. The pimientos de padrón became my favorite dish! Overall this was a great experience and I highly recommend this program.
