I was nervous, yet really excited to study abroad. I knew it was something I've always wanted to do, but it was nerve-racking when the moment finally came! Upon arrival in Barcelona, the ISA staff was really welcoming and did a great job at making me
feel comfortable. They gave us tips on how to prepare for class, living with a host, and even gave suggestions on where the best restaurants and activities are. They always had their door open to students who had any kind of question, and responded quickly to emails, and they were really friendly and helpful! ISA organized several excursions to help us see more of Spain, and they were incredible. Apart from that, they even gave us tips. on how to do our own traveling, and it was obvious that they genuinely cared about our experiences and safety. I was abroad for 3 months, and I never would have thought that those months really fly by, and I'm really thankful that I chose to go abroad with ISA. They really do care about their students and want to see them succeed and I would go back in a heartbeat. If you can, go with ISA!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
