- My Spanish improved a lot07/25/18
Linguistic Horizons is incredibly well run and I was always impressed with the quality of the services provided. Right from the start, Nicole was an incredible resource and was very timely with all of her responses. She really took the time to understand
my goals and what I wanted to receive from my experience and internship abroad. She was attentive to my requests and worked very hard to find me an internship that I liked. I participated in the 5 week internship/study abroad program in La Coruña, Spain, and I had an amazing time! Coruña is a great place to have an immersion experience to practice Spanish, and I appreciated that she always encouraged everyone to speak Spanish, even with her! I feel that my Spanish skills improved greatly during my time in Spain. The weekend excursions were fun, and we attended many interesting events during the week. We also had the freedom to do many things on our own. Nicole was always available to help us in any way, and was an excellent problem solver whenever life threw anything at us. When I got sick, she immediately put me in touch with a great hospital and the experience went very smoothly. She cares so much about her students and I always felt very supported by her. I highly recommend Linguistic Horizons.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

- Study Abroad in Beautiful La Coruna, Spain10/25/15
I can not express how incredible this experience was for me through Lingustic Horizons. I was at a point were I wanted to travel, I needed Spanish credit for college, and I didn't have much money. The program director went above and beyond to help me
reach my goals. In turn, I had an incredible experience in such an extraordinary part of Spain within Basque Country, so green, lush, full of life and culture, right next to the beach, and the heart of Galicia. The food was brilliant, I can not talk enough about one of my professors, I've never learned so much in such a short period of time and I didn't even fully realize until later! It's also a great spot to travel around Spain and Europe after the 5 or 10 week program. It's a hidden gem and Linguistic Horizons helps you get there!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
