The summer program to Oviedo is a wonderful program that really allows you to have the opportunity to gain a new level of Spanish while also becoming immersed within the Spanish culture. I learned so much from everyone I met, from the professors and students to the random store owners I met. I constantly felt like I was learning and becoming a new person. Being in Oviedo, allowed me to see a new culture while also getting the chance to be apart of it. I will always remember my time in that beautiful Spanish city.

Oviedo was a wonderful experience. I made a great deal of progress with my Spanish while I was abroad, and I loved getting to know a new place and a new culture. I would go out and explore the city with my friends, and I loved seeing all of the old, historical buildings. Living with a host family was a great way to see true Spanish culture, and even though it was intimidating at first it was very rewarding in the end. I hope that I can go back to Oviedo one day, and enjoy some tapas while getting to practice my Spanish again with the locals.

This program was absolutely amazing and I loved every minute of it. The city of Oviedo is a perfect place to study abroad because you can walk everywhere, few people speak English so you get to practice Spanish all the time, and it is extremely clean and safe. Best experience ever!

This program was the best experience I have ever had. I loved every minute of it and immersing myself in the Spanish Culture helped me learn more about Spanish than ever before. During my experience, I ended up having to switch host families to have a better experience. Never be afraid to let someone know if you want to switch host families because it can change everything in such a positive way. Going to Spain, I wanted to have the best experience possible in and out of school. Be bold and make sure you are doing all you can to make your experience worthwhile.
