Everything about going to school in Barcelona is amazing: from my walk to class down the beautiful road of Las Ramblas, to the always friendly and helpful staff at the CEA Academic Center. But my favorite part about studying in Barcelona is that I don't just learn in the classroom. For my Architecture and Painting class, we visited La Sagrada Família and La Pedrera to learn about Gaudí's architectural style. Through my Spanish class, I had the opportunity to practice the language when we did a conversational activity with some locals who were learning English. I love that I can learn by seeing and doing rather than reading from a textbook. It has made the educational experience very worthwhile!
