Studying abroad means going to a different country with the genuine intention of doing more than just seeing the sights and checking places off your bucket list. It’s a great way to learn in an immersive environment. Studying abroad is so much more than what you learn in a classroom. Study abroad really gives you the opportunity to take classes in a new context. We met once a week and the class was more or less like a walking tour around the city. Our textbook was the history of Madrid and how it grew. Go somewhere that is completely new to you, that you’re not comfortable at all in, and that is how you will learn and grow. As an experiential learner, really benefitted from not just reading about something in a textbook, but living it.
