Rated overall program Excellent.

Lisa A., Professor
Country: Guatemala

This is my second time using AmeriSpan to study abroad. My experience the last time was so positive! The best part of this program was the last week of volunteering when I was able to really utilize my teaching skills at the school.

Tracy C.,
Country: Guatemala

We had a great experience, learned some Guatemala Sign [Language], and were able to really give a hand to a great program which was short handed. We are staying in touch with the teacher and coordinator and hope to continue supporting their efforts.

Allison B.,
Country: Bolivia

The best was feeling at home in a really beautiful city that was so different from home, and how much my Spanish improved.

Katheryn C.,
Country: Guatemala

This was a life-changing opportunity and it couldn't have gone more smoothly.

Kathleen M., Student

My placements were great, and my onsite coordinator was the best!

Amanda H., Student
Country: Honduras
Rated overall program Good

Kelly C., Student
Country: Chile

I was well prepared and provided with enough information. I really enjoyed my placement and learned a lot. It was an eye opening experience.

Lauren T., Student
Country: Guatemala
The overall placement and the doctor that I worked with was great. I really liked the school and all of the activities that they had to offer.

Kevin T., Unemployed
Country: Argentina

Balancing [my] professional objectives in the context of The Farm School with my own life and a new family proved to be a great challenge, but an eye-opening and very rewarding experience that I will never forget. I continue to keep in contact with my family there.

Kevin T., Unemployed
Country: Argentina

With a time crunch, the logistics ran very smoothly. The bet part was learning about the culture, both personally and professionally.

Jillian A., Social Worker
Country: Peru

AmeriSpan had the cheapest prices and there seemed to be a lot of variety in the field where I wanted to do some volunteer work.

Liseanne K., Attorney
Country: Guatemala

The staff was incredibly professional and helpful. I was extremely impressed. AmeriSpan was great at getting everything set up in a short amount of time.

Cynthia R., Student
Country: Bolivia

Choosing this trip has been one of the best decisions I could have made. Running across AmeriSpan on the internet is something I consider to be the best of luck. The main advice I could give to future participants is to be open. There are so many interesting things you can learn if you are only open to learning.

Sarah W., Probation Officer
Country: Bolivia

I loved this placement-fantastic!! I did not use BETA or EMS but it was reassuring to know it existed. Pre departure info and phone interview was motivational, friendly, and I felt prepared for the classes and the project.

Sophiane C., Student/Sales Rep
Country: Bolivia

The best part of my trip was the family I lived with and the friends I have made. Whenever a person is to travel alone to an unknown country, they can never know what to expect. The phone interview and information given was acceptable and gave me enough confidence to go on my own and look forward to the experience ahead.

Lauren C., Student
Country: Peru

I loved my placement experience. I taught piano to a small class of boys, and then my friend Alamara and I combined our classes to work on a little newspaper for the center. Although I was a bit surprised at first to discover how little supervision I had, the freedom helped me become more self-motivated and independent.

Sarah W., Probation Officer
Country: Argentina

I have had the time of my life and I have enjoyed my placement and classes very much. I have had loads of fun!!

Erin G., Advertising
Country: Argentina

I loved Buenos Aires. I brought home many memories with me. I believe that I grew a lot in the last five months and learned a lot about traveling, people and myself. My Spanish improved tremendously.

Elizabeth B., Physical Therapist
Country: Peru

Living with a family made the transition into living in Peru a lot easier. My family (Paul and Magda Rodriguez) provided me with not only a stress-free environment to practice my Spanish, but also gave me essential tips about taxis, safe and not safe places to go and very comfortable lodgings.

Lance Q., Spanish high school teacher
Country: Bolivia

I would advise future participants to speak as much Spanish as they can while in Bolivia... and not to bring travelers checks.

Jessica A., Student
Country: Bolivia

Your staff was more helpful than others and AmeriSpan is cheaper than a University Study Abroad program. My program was more organized than I expected once I got in-country which was very comforting.

Rhonda S., Occupational Therapist
Country: Argentina

The best part of my trip was being immersed in the Argentine culture. I felt I couldnt' have chosen a better place to learn and volunteer. I always felt supported by the school in anything I needed during my stay in Cordoba.

Claudia C., Social worker
Country: Ecuador

AmeriSpan was definitely the right organization for me and I have only the highest praise to give. I was adequately prepared. My questions were answered and I feel that I knew as much as I could prior to traveling.

Eleanor J., Student
Country: Argentina

My pre-departure experience was a very positive one. Everything was very well organized on this end and questions were answered in a timely fashion. I felt very prepared to head to Argentina. AmeriSpan was flexible with my time schedule and time restrictions.
