I recently finished my minor in Spanish and Latino studies at USFSP. Last Summer I spent a month in Salamanca, Spain as part of USFSP’s study abroad program. I received three credit hours, finished my minor, and was even having dreams in Spanish. I never would have accomplished this or became a fluent Spanish speaker if I didn’t find this program at USFSP. … It was a genuine opportunity to take what I have learned in school for years and finally use it in real life. I didn’t just get to learn the language, I was a part of Spanish culture too.
I know it may sound cliché, but my time in Spain was life changing. I learned so much about the culture, met other USF students that I still keep in touch with, and improved my Spanish. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to improve his or her Spanish, experience Spanish culture, and live in what is now my favorite city in the world-Salamanca!
This summer I went on my second study abroad with USF, this time going to Salamanca, Spain. It was different than anything I had every experienced because we had the unique opportunity of staying with host families. My host mother did not speak any English, but by the time I left I felt like she could have been my own mother. I have never been good at studying a second language, but the immersion made it more enjoyable and much easier.
I was nervous because this was my first time travelling abroad, but I am so glad that I did not let that keep me from this experience! My time in Salamanca was one of the best times in my life. I lived with a Spanish family and had two roommates from USF (we called each other Spanish sisters) and I still see a lot of the students I went to Salamanca with. I learned a lot about Spanish culture and I greatly improved my Spanish speaking skills. If it weren’t for my time in Salamanca, I do not think I would have been prepared for Spanish IV.
