I had a fantastic time in Santiago with COINED. I really liked my host family--they were quite kind to me and flexible with my schedule. If I wanted to come back late, fine. If went out to dinner, or wanted to eat dinner early, fine. I just told my host mom and everything was fine.

I went to lunch after class with my friends from the school at a variety of restaurants surrounding the school, then usually came back to the school for the activities, where we traveled around Santiago, checking out museums, houses, parks, etc. It was a great way to spend an afternoon and learn about Santiago. On weekends, I took trips to places we couldn't access in just an afternoon, and I made friends from some other schools in the area (as the weekend trips were combined with "sister schools").

The academics were great. The class sizes were small, and the teachers worked with us when we didn't understand. We read articles, spoke solely in Spanish, watched videos, and did exercises. I learned a lot and had a great time, making friends with the other students and my teachers in the process.

How can this program be improved?
I would encourage a little bit of optional homework be given. Occasionally we got homework, but not too often. I think tips for how to learn spanish outside the classroom, like recording words I didn't know and studying them, conversational tips, etc., would be beneficial.

Quando fui para Santiago jamais imaginaria que viveria tudo que vivi. Cresci como pessoa e como mulher. Sofri por muito tempo sozinha, mas tudo começou a melhorar depois que fui ao meu primeiro dia de aula na COINED. Conheci pessoas incríveis, tanto pelos profissionais que ali trabalham como pelos alunos que estão tentando aprender ou aperfeiçoar o espanhol. Aprendi culturas diferentes e convivi com pessoas do mundo inteiro! O mais importante foi a preocupação da COINED em fazer planos para que os alunos pudessem se ligar entre si, fazendo com que o espanhol fosse praticado e que a gente conhecesse a cultura, não só de Santiago, mais de todo o Chile.
Resumindo: as pessoas, os passeios, a cidade, a escola e o clima (apesar de muito frio) foram capaz de tornar a minha viagem inesquecível...

How can this program be improved?
Me gustaria que la profesora fuera más dinamica, para que las clases no sea aburrida.

The day I arrived, people were really kind and helpful.
As the minutes passed by, I watched a board with activities for the whole week and it made me even more excited.
At Coined, they have this special Empanada welcome during your first day of class.
If you go, you have to go to the Terremoto Night, it's such a special night because you get to know more people and also get to prove one of their typical drinks.
I really enjoyed my stay and I'm already willing to go back.

How can this program be improved?
When I discovered coined, I didn't know the name was coined... I thought it was enforex. And it made very hard to find the address. So, I think at enforex site or via email when you talk to the people they should tell you the real name.

I loved my two weeks at Coined in Santiago, I arrived on a Friday a few days before my first class started on the monday, and my host suggested I go in at midday Friday to meet students anyway! Great suggestion because I made some amazing new friends. In fact the social activities are excellent, especially enjoyed the white-water rafting, walking through Valparaiso and amazing sceneries!! Highly recommend Coined in Santiago Chile!!!!!!!!!

Very serious and dedicated staff. I enjoyed my time there, the courses were progressive and interactive, the small groups enable people to progress more effectively. Other students were very nice and the school offers great activities.
