One of my favorite parts of the program was my homestay. I stayed with an older woman and her dog (shes with me in the picture!). Not only was her cooking amazing but she went above and beyond to immerse me in the culture by taking me to various community events.
Thanks to the program my Spanish level and independence have both increased exponentially. I look forward to continuing talking with my Spanish speaking family and friends on campus. Traveling throughout Europe was a blast and has led me to consider traveling again next summer.
I would definitely recommend students be prepared for the difficult classes! The large amount of free time and fun things to do in Alicante helped balance this though.
