Winter 2013


This program is by far the best language immersion program I have found. I studied Spanish with Karla Peña for 3 months in Mérida and am amazed to find that I can discuss politics and history and well as joke with new friends in a different language. But more importantly I have gained immense wisdom from the culture and the people that I was given the opportunity to meet through PICY. If you are looking for a place to learn Spanish and discover a little more about who you are in new contexts, this is an incredible and unique place to study.
