Wilfred and Zeta O'Donnell
My 6-week experience in Cuba was amazing as a travel experience, but even more lucrative as a learning experience. Being immersed in the language all day, every day made learning much easier than it would have been sitting down for homework every night in Canada. I was also learning by doing everyday activities, such as browsing in a bookstore, going out to restaurants with friends, and hanging out with local students. I can say now, with confidence, that I can speak Spanish and feel comfortable enough to carry on a conversation with old teachers. I used to be embarrassed to speak because I knew I made mistakes and didn’t have much practice, but my experience abroad broke the ice and encouraged me to speak more often. This ultimately made me a better Spanish student, and made finishing my certificate a lot easier!
Study Abroad and Exchange, Italy
"The time I spent in Siena not only provided me with a better knowledge of the Italian language but also with lasting memories and friendships that will remain with me forever. I would highly recommend this program to other students who wish to improve their Italian and immerse themselves in a foreign culture. ? stata una bella esperienza che non dimenticher? mai."
