My summer abroad as an International student by Georga-Kay Whyte ’22

I studied abroad in Madrid Spain in June 2021. I took intermediate Spanish language and culture courses at Universidad Nebrija. During my study abroad experience, not only was I working on my language proficiency but I was able to immerse myself in Spanish culture by getting to visit prominent museums and landmarks including the Retiro Park, Prado Museum, and Plaza Mayor I was also able to explore neighboring cities in Spain including Toledo, Segovia, and Barcelona.  While I was in Spain, I was able to get an authentic experience by living with a host family and attending school with native Spanish speakers. The biggest takeaway from my experience was the importance of language in connecting with others. I was able to push myself to learn more than I ever did before because I realized that the more I knew the more I was able to connect with those around me.
