The API program for Complutense was an incredible chance for me to improve my Spanish and learn all about the Spanish culture. I've traveled abroad before but the Madrid program is great. The onsite staff is very helpful and their office door is always open. Madrid was a very safe city and a perfect example of the Spanish culture. We took about five excursions with everything included and it was a great way to get to know my fellow students. Being an international student at Complutense was somewhat overwhelming at first but the professors are very understanding and the classes were very helpful. I would recommend a "home-stay" because my house-mom helped me with my Spanish all of the time and we still keep in contact! Overall, this program is well worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone.
