This program opened my eyes to a culture and society I knew very little about. I made great friends and had a fabulous time during the process. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.Jessica Cobb, Western Michigan University
I chose this program because of everything it offered. The fact that everything was included made the experience much less stressful. The people working for the program definitely ensured we got the most out of our time here. The AIFS cultural activities and excursions were excellent.
