Personal comments:
I had the challenges that any foreigner will face, but everyone was so patient. In the begining I did not even want to answer my cell phone if my house mom was calling, because I knew that I would not understand anything she said, but by the end of one year; I would call her just to see how her day was going and spend some nights with her and her girlfriends while they gossiped the night away!

Personal comments:
The year abroad was the major factor in my language learning which at that point had lasted 9 years in total. The experience of going to a university where you could not avoid listening to 4 or 5 hours of spanish every day was invaluable to me and made me fluent. Over the year communication became easier and I felt more and more confident as time went by.
