I found the overall experience to be very positive. At first I was worried about being able to make a difference in just three weeks, but the attendance at our English workshops was very high and I was able to appreciate the impact we had. I did not always love the volunteer activities, like helping at the recycling center, but anything can be fun when you are surrounded by wonderful people. I got to experience things I never would have at home, like walking cows (yes really!) and seeing a calf being born. I also made several close friends because of this experience that I would not have met otherwise.
