Not only will it enhance your overall study abroad experience, but it will give you a personal appreciation for your home country as well.  As an American in particular, this is often very hard – trust me, I’ve been there.  We yanks are…

    What is Study Abroad?

    A 2020 Virtual Study Abroad Experience | Is it Worth it?

    Follow me on Pinterest In light of recent events, over the past two months, I’ve had many students reach out to me, asking for advice on what to do now that their study abroad plans have changed.

    My 2007 AIFS Internship Experience Part I | London Study Abroad

    This week’s post has been a long time coming and I am excited to FINALLY share this with you. Over the next two weeks, I am going to be giving my full review on my 2007 London Study Abroad experience interning with the American Institute For Foreign Study, known to most as AIFS.
