Study Abroad in Spain

I have learned so much about Spanish culture in different regions and how deeply rooted it is. The languages here all have a strong connection to the people who use them. Every place I have visited has been absolutely beautiful and the history is phenomenal. I know when I return to Wesleyan I'll have so much confidence in my language skills, a better understanding of Spanish culture and a few words of Catalan under my belt!”
