- Amazing Experience Through IES04/01/14
This experience was truly the most enriching of my life. I learned so much about German culture, language, and history. I also had a great time with my classes, and it was very interesting to visit the places about which we were learning. My living arrangements
were fantastic - I lived with an extremely welcoming host in an apartment. It was extremely accessible by public transportation. The staff at IES was also very helpful and informative, and the center was in a great location. This summer was life changing, and I highly recommend this program. I lived in a great apartment with a very nice host. I always felt safe and could get anywhere easily with the city transportation.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Top notch study abroad03/27/13
My time with IES Abroad in Berlin was undoubtedly the highlight of my college experience. The staff at the center are all really special people who enjoy their work and go above and beyond to make your experience safe, comfortable and fun. I had some
trouble on my way to Berlin (2 missed flights and communication issues) but with their support I made it safe and sound. In addition to the high quality of education they offer at the center, there are tons of opportunities to explore and socialize with the members of the center and other students, including group trips, dinners, etc. I didn't run into any problems during my stay. My homestay was well-chosen and enjoyable, and all of my needs were taken care of.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
