What Our Students are Saying
"Studying abroad with ISA has been the best decision of my college experience. I expected to learn about the culture, and of course about Spanish in my classes, but I never could have guessed how much I would learn about myself in the process. The people I met, the places I visited, and the experiences I had were invaluable."

"ISA was extremely welcoming. From the first day, they made Madrid feel like home. They were always available when I needed them. ISA made my study abroad experience one that I will never forget."
Alyssa P.Texas A&M University
"Studying abroad was a perfect way to get to know many different cultures and gain a broader understanding about cultural differences. I would recommend students going abroad to keep an open mind about everything, to be aware of cultural differences, to research the places they will be visiting before their travels, and to take advantage of any opportunity to try new things."

"If anyone is looking for a unique experience that has the best staff in all of the study abroad programs, ISA is the program for you. I never felt like I was an outcast in any situation and could go to the ISA staff for any needs or problems. Getting to know everyone through ISA was like having a second family that I will always remember and one day reunite with in the near future. ISA did a wonderful job of choosing host families that are caring and give respect to each and every student. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do. ISA has a place in my heart forever."

My language skills have improved greatly as well as my ability to interact and handle different cultures and ideas."
