Life Changing Experiences

I enjoyed my experience; my teacher was very supportive. We talked a lot and she helped me overcome my fear of speaking Spanish. This was a problem for me but now I have confidence and am speaking to everyone possible in Spanish! I hope to return next January and study here again. "Muchas gracias por todo!"

Thanks for the time spent here and all the support given by the school and teachers. I can't stop mentioning that my host family was extremely kind too, they were always worried and interested on my progress. School journeys and excursions were very entertaining as well
