Natalie - 2019

I decided to complete this short term experience because i wanted to improve my spanish language skills and had previously visited Granada and knew that i would love to return and explore the city and culture further.

Academically, i have improved my spanish language skills immensely as i was living with a spanish family during the month i was there and the course provided at the university of granada was very comprehensive and well organised. I have also gained invaluable personal experiences from living with a spanish family and experiencing their culture to the fullest.
