What it's like to study in Spain:

"This past spring, 34 Calvin students lived, breathed, studied, and dreamt Spain for almost 5 months.  We had a great time, with excursions to Barcelona, Granada and Cordoba, and Madrid.  Many of us also took weekend trips to places like Murcia, Alicante, Valencia, Ibiza, San Sebastian, and other cities.  One of my favorite parts of my time there was talking to Spaniards that I would encounter throughout Denia.  One elderly man came up to a group of us Calvin students with his dog Lola and chatted with us for almost 15 minutes, giving us advice on what kind of men to date, on enjoying life while we're young, and telling us about the wonders of Spain.  This unexpected conversation was a lot of fun and really why we were in Spain to meet people, to learn the language, and to experience the culture."
