Absolutely enjoyed myself in Spain for 3 weeks as I was hosted by wonderful parents who enjoyed having me. The program instructors were great individuals who were very informative and fun to be around.

I had a great time immersing myself in the Spanish culture through YES in Spain. The teachers were very helpful and so fun that class didn't really feel like class at all! I would reccomend this program to anyone looking to experience Spain!

I was absolutely in love with this program. It was worth every penny. The teachers, Sonía and Reyes were absolutely amazing and I learned so much from them. I gained so much fluency from them and by living and speaking with my host family. It was a wonderful program that combined schooling as well as daily life interactions. I hope I can go back someday and visit with all the wonderful people I met in Spain.

I think I would make the trip to Granada longer. Maybe three or even four days. Granada was so beautiful and I felt that you couldn't really get a true view of its deep culture in only 1 and a half days.

Before I traveled to Spain, I was a normal Spanish student. I got "OK" grades and it was not really my biggest priority. I decided to go to get experience traveling abroad and it changed my life. They paired me with an exchange student that had SO much in common with me right from the start, making it easy to adapt to the new social settings. We also got to visit so many monumental places, places that are only imaginable in pictures, and they are experiences made real. I was there during the World Cup, and many activities were programmed into our schedule to surround us with pure Spanish culture. Before my trip with Yes in Spain, I was just a normal Spanish student. Now, I am acing my Spanish five class, I have tested into 300 level Spanish at Indiana University Bloomington, and I have gained life long experiences and friends that will last a lifetime. I am proud to say that Yes in Spain has changed my entire life course. I will now become a Spanish teacher.

I went to Spain with YES the summer before my senior year, and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I got to learn more Spanish by being completely immersed in the language, but I also learned about the culture and history. Sevilla (or Seville in English) is FULL of historic landmarks from the Torre de Oro (Golden Tower) to Sevilla's beautiful cathedral that I walked by everyday on my way to school. The teachers at YES are Spanish natives and go with you on your excursions. They speak to you in Spanish and challenge you to keep learning. And once the classes are over and you're home from your excursion, it's time to meet your intercambios. These are Spanish students that have been your "pen pal" for the months leading up to your visit. We would meet up almost every night to hang out with our new friends and get to know what it is like to be a teenager living in Spain! This is really an amazing program. It's a chance to visit another country and actually experience the living culture as well as make new friends and understand world cultures better.
