Program Testimonials
Now, I have a sense of preparedness for my future self. I am ready to put myself in situations I usually would not out of fear. My timidity in speaking Spanish has lessened after the program because I finally let go of over thinking what I would like to convey when speaking to natives. Turns out I was at a higher level than I thought, for each person I spoke with told me I was "very espaƱola" and "speak without an accent". When I return to working at Apps on the Fall, I have new teaching techniques for my ESOL students due to my T-Oigo experience. After being abroad, you feel as if you can take on the world and that's what I'm most excited for.
