Review

This is a great program. My Spanish improved tremendously both from the full immersion and the university classes. The school and the city felt very familiar and it was refreshing to be in a non touristy area. I had traveled to Spain before, and the bigger cities were very hussle and bussle. Coruña had a more laid back atmosphere that made it feel like a second home. Linguistic horizons was very informative about what to expect from the city and how to get around. The ciudad vieja, or old city, part of town was my favorite place since it was close to the beautiful port and had an a type of renaissance charm. I felt very safe walking around town and taking the buses and did not have much trouble with bus schedules. Although I did learn to always be a few minutes early for the bus. Even though the food was different, it was pretty good. As a vegan, I thought it would be difficult to eat out and find options to fit my diet, but I was able to eat almost everywhere. The pimientos de padrón became my favorite dish! Overall this was a great experience and I highly recommend this program.
