“Mi experiencia en Granada fue incomparable a cualquier otra experiencia que alguien pueda tener cuando se va afuera. Tenía la oportunidad de hacer clases en la UGR, estudiando con y conociendo gente no sólo del EEUU, pero de España y más de Europa. Aprendía el ritmo de academia y adaptaba a todas las diferencias que había entre el UGR y mi universidad. Fue difícil pero de superar obstáculos y sentirme en casa a la terminación del 6 meses, servía como señal que he alcanzar mis metas de integrarme completamente en la vida española. Tengo amigos de todos países y nunca voy a perder y estoy muy agradecida que está experiencia me empujaba a aprender de y apreciar diversas culturas y tradiciones.”

“It is hard to describe in words how much I loved my semester abroad experience in Granada. I didn’t speak any Spanish when I arrived, but with the support of the program staff, the professors at the CLM and my host family, I was both proficient and confident in Spanish by the time I left. Granada is a city with a large college student population, and the community of Granada is unlike any other. Everyone was surprisingly friendly and welcoming, especially to Americans like me who were trying to learn Spanish, and there is so much to do in Granada, both during the day and at night. It’s also very easy to travel around Europe from Granada – I went to places like Paris, Morocco, London, Florence, Venice, and many, many cities all over Spain. Anyone who is looking for an amazing semester abroad experience where they can learn (or reach fluency in) a language and fully immerse themselves in a fun, rich culture with great people and delicious food should absolutely consider studying abroad in Granada.”
