The staff is incredible! And the program is the perfect blend of structure and free time.Erin, Cornell University, Summer 2016
I loved cultural activities. They allowed us to bond with the buddies and learn more about the youth culture. I also LOVED all of my instructors. They were both so helpful and such sweet, caring people.Samantha, Lehigh University, Spring 2017
I think this course was fantastic! Highlight of my education abroad, it really allowed me to engage with my surroundings and as the course went on I was able to take things that I learned through this course with me on my weekend travels. I will speak highly of this course when I return home and the positive impact it had on my abroad experience.Student in Prague, Czech Republic
