- My only regret is choosing only one semester!07/05/15
There were so many activities that I got to take part in that changed me as a person! I got to teach many English, dance and theatre classes to younger kids throughout my city. I took flamenco classes which helped me understand more of the Spanish culture.
I also played volleyball with friends and I was terrible! But hey! You live and you learn! My favorite experience, and easily the best day of my life, was the graduation ceremony at the school because I was lucky enough to graduate early from my school, give a speech, and perform in front of everyone. Studying in Spain was the best thing I have ever decided to do. My only regret is choosing only one semester! Service given by Greenheart Travel and Hope were absolutely amazing and helped my family and I so much with getting set to go to Spain! I felt so welcomed when arriving in Madrid, everyone working at the building was so kind. It was my birthday so they got me Spanish pastries which was very kind! This was the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I cannot thank you all enough. My host family, city and experience was amazing. Thank you!!! - Alana Simpson, exchange student in Spainread moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
