Personal comments
I encountered many difficulties, which has brought me to a higher level of Spanish. There are many aspects of this study abroad experience that have been unique. For one part, I was a bit nervous at the beginning that I was leaving off to a foreign country not knowing where I was going to stay and having to find my own way around. I arrived speaking none to very little Spanish. But now when I look back I am so happy I had to do it this way. I see many Americans and Erasmus students with groups and tour guides helping them with their every move. This HPU exchange program has brought me to a higher level of Spanish in many different ways I would not have been able to experience if not taking the opportunity.

Well, with almost anything in life, when you are new to something, where it being a new city, new country, first year in school, you always tend to spend more. With that being said, It was my first time actualy "living" abroad, and I had alot to learn on expenses and how to save abroad!

Personal recommendation
Going to Seville is a chance of a lifetime I would recommend not missing. Seville is a beautiful city filled with lots of adventure and things to learn about. If you would like to get the feel of Spanish cultural, the city of Seville could be one of your best choices! Many people told me that the temperature year round was hot and to not worry about brining winter clothes. With that being true in the months of spring and summer, when first arriving in February and until March it rained almost every day and was very cold, almost reaching snow on some days. So make sure you come prepared for all seasons here in Seville!

Final comments
My experience abroad has been a forgetful experience that has taught my more then I could have imagined. I can say that I have never learned so much in so little of a period of time. My classes abroad consist of small groups of people from all over the world, from Europe, Asia, Brazil to, and U.S in which we are constantly involved in an exchange of topics with mindsets from all over the world. Being a part of this exchange program I have been forced to step out of my comfort zone and express my thoughts and opinions in return learning so much about myself and others. I feel so lucky and fortunate to have been able to have this experience. I am earning full time college credits while greatly improving my Spanish language skills. Seville is a beloved city with many activities and things to do, which left me never bored or looking for something to do. Here in Seville, the people are very friendly and outgoing; within one week I have made a group of friends that will last for a lifetime. This study abroad experience I came to Seville as a tourist but after soaking up all of its culture has to offer I found out new things about myself I never even knew existed changing my image of a tourist, into a well known visitor, leaving nothing behind. It is with these experiences we find, that “ no matter who you are, or where you’re from, everybody has something to offer.”

Personal comments
The school did not help set up housing for us, so upon arrival we were obligated to go look for a place ourselves. But I would recommend doing the same because once you arrive there are many postings listed all over the campus, the city and on the internet for apartments for rent, probably because there are so many international students coming in and out. There is a good company that helps you with looking for an apartment if you still feel stuck and the website/email is called roomatesevilla.com
