I really want to say thank you to everyone that made this trip happen. It was really a once in a lifetime adventure that truly opened my eyes to a whole new slice of the world.

We love only what we understand. It's important to keep your mind open so that you can learn more about new people and places.

I felt like I became more independent naturally. After one month of living in France, I definitely experienced the culture. I felt that switch: earlier, I thought it sounded foreign when people would speak French; now, I find it weird when they don't.

The world is out there ready to be explored. There is nothing stopping you and everything waiting.

It was definitely the best trip of my life. Not only did I have so much fun, my Spanish also improved greatly!

Coming to Salamanca was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. Through ISA-HS, I was able to learn not only in a classroom setting, but out in the world as well! The University of Salamanca was open, welcoming and I learned a lot in my classes. The teachers were very kind and very helpful. The lessons I learned outside of class are invaluable. Because of the independence ISA-HS allows, I have become much more confident. I can communicate with others in a different language, I can make good decisions, I can help others in ways I hadn't thought about and I can live away from home for a long time! I had so much fun on this trip, I wish I could stay longer!
