My overall experience in Brazil through CET was extraordinary. Although I already learned and knew quite a lot about Brazil, its culture, its society and also the Portuguese language prior to my trip in Spring 2018, the CET/PUC courses that I took, the different activities I took part in, as well as the trips that I made, both through CET and independently have really helped me gain great wealth of knowledge about the country and the people, as well as better my conversational skills. I have also made a lot of friends throughout my program, especially with those outside of the CET Brazil program. Since my return to the United States, I feel more Brazilian. In other words, I can say that Brazil is in me. I would highly recommend this program.

I have a wonderful experience with CET, although it could have been better. I feel like the Brazilian roommates I was paired up with have done very little to make my study abroad program an amazing one. I barely had conversations with them and have absolutely nothing in common with them. Everywhere I went, I felt isolated and was always left out. But I admire the fact that CET allowed students to independently travel, which enabled me to make friends outside of my program.
