Little did I know that I would learn more about myself and the world than anything I could ever learn in a classroom. Being abroad for four months gives you the chance to not only see the touristy places, but also the small details of life that make up the culture in Barcelona.
The CISabroad program with School for International Studies in Barcelona gave the best bang for my buck! At a very affordable price, housing; overnight trips with accommodations, transportation, and meals included; cultural and language exchanges; a cooking class; and competitions for tickets to cool things to do around Barcelona were all included. The teachers at SIS are absolutely incredible and many of the classes are related to the history of Barcelona so we go to go on a lot of class trips. Overall I highly recommend CISabroad and particularly this program.
I wanted to immerse myself into the culture and really get a feel for what it was like to live there. I met people and experienced so many things that gave me an opportunity to live a completely different life.
