Love Cadiz

This program allows you to not only see Cadiz, but also to travel to Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Granada, and Seville. There were also free weekends for travel in which I had the privilege of using to go to Morocco and Barcelona. The experience was amazing overall. The beach was absolutely beautiful and I felt like I was at a resort all summer. All I can really say against this program is that if you are looking to really improve your Spanish you will have to do so on your own. You travel with a group of Americans, so your social life is with those Americans who speak English to each other. The homestay was beneficial for learning Spanish, but I also stayed with another American in the house, so we spoke English to each other while not with our host mother.
