Amazing Experience

My study abroad experience in Brazil was incredible. I really enjoyed taking classes with Brazilian students at an actual Brazilian university (though the students did go on strike the last week). The CIEE teachers were amazing, especially Professor Sergio.

How can this program be improved?
Some people had poor homestay experiences (I loved mine). Perhaps more thorough vetting?
Yes, I recommend this program
