"For Spanish majors, spending at least one semester in a Spanish-speaking country is an absolute must. Judging from my own experience -my family and I spent 1987-1988 with EAP in Barcelona,- I cannot stress enough the usefulness of "living" the language and culture on a daily basis.
"Living" the language is very different from the normal five-hours-per-week exposure to Spanish in a university classroom. My family's stay in Spain truly opened my mind to diverse points of view. There is nothing more exciting than following in the steps of world-class writers like Cervantes or Unamuno!
Studying on EAP is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity -- don't miss it!"
