what's one story or important aspect you always tell people about your time abroad?
One story I always share from my time in Granada, Spain, is the unforgettable experience of visiting the Alhambra at sunset. As the warm hues of the setting sun bathed the exquisite palace complex in a golden glow, I was truly mesmerized by the intricate architecture and the tranquil beauty of the Generalife gardens. It was a moment of pure magic, where centuries of history came alive, and I felt a deep sense of connection to the rich cultural tapestry of Andalusia.
What was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
Spanish 230 was my favorite class while studying abroad because it provided a unique opportunity to deepen my understanding of the language and culture in an immersive environment. The dynamic teaching style and engaging curriculum made the learning process enjoyable, and the small class size allowed for personalized interactions with both the instructor and fellow students. Through interactive discussions, challenging assignments, and real-life language applications, the class not only improved my language skills but also enriched my overall experience in the Spanish-speaking country.
