  • Why You Should Be A Greenheart

    I had the best summer of my life in 2017. Going on this language camp was and is still the best decision I've made in my life. I went to Salamanca, Spain for 6 weeks and learned more than I could've imagined about the country, the language, and myself.

  • Spain
    My study abroad in Spain was filled with so many fun adventures. Between learning a new language and culture, I was never bored. I learned so much Spanish and made so many lasting friendships. Spain is the perfect place learn and have a lot of fun.

  • My Host Family was a Perfect Fit
    The service was very good and everyone I met from Greenheart Travel was very friendly. My host family was perfect for my personality and everything went smoothly, I especially liked the three days in Madrid.

  • My only regret is choosing only one semester!

    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.
