Amazing Experience!

This program was incredible. We had an amazing apartment for the two of us. It was beautiful, within walking distance of everything, and I always felt safe within the apartment/ surrounding area. Mireia, our program coordinator, was unbelievably accommodating, helpful, and always full of suggestions of places to see/eat/explore. Although I did not go on all the excursions, the ones that I did go to were fun, and allowed me to see some things that I'm not sure that I would've seen otherwise, such as the Dali museum. This is a small program, but it is easy to make friends at the university, because you are integrated with the other programs. Overall, I highly recommend this program for a cultural, fun, and new experience!

How can this program be improved?

The size is small, so if you are looking for something with a lot of people I would suggest a different program. Other than that, it was fantastic!

Yes, I recommend
