    Great article! I studied abroad in France when I was at University…a priceless experience that helped me become the person I am today. Now I help others study abroad and include volunteering in this (something I also did and at age 24 I came to Guatemala and have since built my life here!). If you are interested, take a look at my website!

    • So happy to hear that! Thanks for sharing Sarah!

    Can’t agree more with some of the reasons you’ve mentioned. It is simply the easiest way to learn a new language. I learnt a lot of German in a semester abroad.
    And most importantly it helps you get out of your comfort zone and become independent.
