Don't Believe Us? Ask Our Past Clients
During the past few issues of this newsletter, we have stressed what we think are some of the biggest reasons why one should select AmeriSpan as your Study Abroad partner.  We have emphasized that you never pay more with AmeriSpan (price and foreign currency guarantees), have no worries (money-back and satisfaction guarantees) and you are receiving the very best advice from a team of experienced professionals at a leading company (16 years and more than 30,000 past participants).  We asked ourselves, "what else can we say?"

Then, we realized, there are many independent voices out there, that can verify everything we are saying...  Past AmeriSpan participants!  We have worked hard and we now have more than 3,000 past participants listed on our website, the vast majority allow you to send them an email directly. We recommend you read some of their comments, email them directly and ask their thoughts?  Prefer Facebook? Why not post on our Wall and see what others are saying.  Better yet do both!

Studying Abroad Makes You "Recession Proof"
Layoffs continue and many experts are predicting the employment situation won't improve in the short-term.  Most seem to think late this year or sometime next year will finally start to see new jobs added. Regardless of the exact situation, this is a perfect time to invest in yourself.  Make yourself more acceptable to a future employer, your current employer, the college you want to attend or that perfect Graduate program.
