Amazing City

The program in Valencia Spain is a great program in an amazing city. Valencia is located on the Mediterranean and is large enough to have wonderful places to visit and see but small enough to be easy to navigate and walk. The classes at the Universidad de Valencia were taught by professors there and were only attended by other students from the US. All classes were entirely in Spanish and the teachers worked hard to immerse the students in Spanish language and culture. I lived with a Spanish woman and my roommate in her apartment. Talking with her each day really helped to improve my conversational Spanish and allowed me to learn a lot about daily life in Spain. The best part is if you go in the Spring you get to attend the amazing festival of Las Fallas in Valencia. I would highly recommend this program. You will fall in love with Spain and Valencia. I've returned numerous times since I studied there.
