GIC Argentina

I also liked the GIC Spanish programs. I did a month at the UBA school and a month at their own school after maxing out the levels at UBA, and thought both were very good. The teachers at both locations were experienced and kept things interesting for the most part - and there wasn't a lot of changing of teachers which I don't like (well the GIC-UBA program had 2 teachers and the GIC school had the same one for the month). They seemed to have a good group of homestay families for the ones of us staying with families - mi familia era di-vi-na! Would recommend either of their Spanish programs.

Global Crossroad

what a program! I have no word to express global crossroad program that I have experience in Tanzania and India. I joined both country. the service is superb both Fredrick and Rajan are the best ground coordinator. The safari driver Michael, what a charming guy. I assure anyone, the service of Global Crossroad in Tanznaia and India is the best. the home base is better than USA and very safe. Finally, Global Crossroad surpass the quality of program than I expect. Global Crossroad program two thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi John. Which programme did you choose in Tanzania?
John. You either are extremely uneducated or use English as a second language. Don't think I'll be going with this company. VERY dodgy!
John- Where are you from? Is English your first language? This sounds like somebody from GC stuffing the ballot.

API - Academic Programs International

The directors on-site were helpful and available within their office hours. Airport pickup, an international field trip, and more was included, with about one overnight field trip a month. US office was less helpful. This program expected students to be a little more independent, but would provide help, suggestions, and resources when asked. This program was a little more of a vacation/ party program than serious study, but I still got a lot from the experience. A smaller program compared to others in Granada, which was nice. Homestays were well screened compared to classmates in other (non-API) programs.

Academic Studies Abroad

As a student studying abroad, I couldn’t have been happier with Academic Studies Abroad. From the very beginning, everything went smoothly and according to plan. From the very beginning paperwork, housing and classes abroad to getting transcripts back to my home university, it was seamless. Our program director, Elena, was also absolutely fantastic. She helped us with anything we needed and truly went out of her way to make sure each one of us was comfortable with our host family, roommates, classes and was always letting us in on all the little secrets Barcelona had to offer. Our program was also quite small which I really enjoyed. With ten members in our group, it allowed us all to form friendships with each other and really learn on excursions. I would certainly recommend Academic Studies Abroad to anyone looking for a really personal experience abroad. I enjoyed it tremendously and would do it again in an instant!! Thanks ASA!

GIC Argentina

I don't know anything about their volunteering, but their Spanish school is actually pretty good. I studied Spanish for a month with them and everyone seemed to like their teachers a lot - I thought the teacher I had, Federico, was awesome. Ask for him!
