Spring semester is gone and students are back home. In our last newsletter, you can learn about student’s volunteer and intercultural experiences. We hope students now are better global citizens after their enriching cultural experience in Barcelona!

“The hour I spent volunteering was always the highlight of my week “

Jake from Vanderbilt University volunteered as English Teaching Assistant at Escola Pía  16-17 year old kids.  Jake commented "I had an amazing experience with my estudiantes at Escola Pia! They taught me so much about everything from culture to language to reggaton. The hour I spent every Tuesday was always the highlight of my week, and I am so grateful to CIEE, Escolar Pia, and the group of 25 fantastic 17-year-old Spanish students for such an amazing opportunity."

Here you can find some of the digital videos students made for the CIEE class Intercultural Communication and Leadership about their intercultural experience in Barcelona.

“Being born Mexican, a goal of mine had always been to completely immerse myself in a Hispanic Culture”

Miranda from Cornell University talked about being born Mexican and grown up not learning much Spanish. Being in Barcelona helped her to improve her Spanish a lot and to appreciate her own culture.

“Going abroad shaped my perspective on how our cultures are distinctly unique”

Adam from Cornell University focused his storytelling project in going beyond the pictures. He commented: “Studying abroad rounded my understanding for what my culture deems normal, while others sincerely question.”
