I had an amazing experience in A Coruña through Linguistic Horizons. The city is vibrant and truly has it all—delicious food, pristine beaches, fantastic nightlife, and plenty of cultural activities to participate in. Everyone speaks Spanish to you, which can be intimidating but is ultimately beneficial and everyone is very kind and helpful in communicating with you.
The University of A Coruña and Linguistic Horizons worked together to create an atmosphere conducive to learning as well as fun social interactions. I made friends with people from all around the world!
Nicole is a tireless, wonderful and helpful leader. She is not only fun and funny, but an expert in both Spanish and Coruña’s culture. She is full of advice and helpful tips. The day trips she plans are both affordable and incredible (especially the trip to the Cies Islands—you HAVE to go!) I cannot say enough good things about her!
Overall Linguistic Horizons is a stellar program that is successful in incorporating language use, cultural activities and fun! I left the program near fluent in Spanish, and truly became felt I was apart of the community in Coruña. I would recommend it to everyone, and am thinking about going back myself!

Linguistic Horizons is incredibly well run and I was always impressed with the quality of the services provided. Right from the start, Nicole was an incredible resource and was very timely with all of her responses. She really took the time to understand my goals and what I wanted to receive from my experience and internship abroad. She was very receptive to what I wanted and was very attentive to my needs. She worked very hard to find me an internship that I liked! I participated in the 5 week internship/study abroad program in La Coruña, Spain, and I had an amazing time! Coruña is a great place to have an immersion experience to practice Spanish, and I appreciated that she always encouraged everyone to speak Spanish, even with her! I feel that my Spanish skills improved greatly during my time in Spain. The weekend excursions were fun, and we attended many interesting events during the week. We also had the freedom to do many things on our own. Nicole was always available to help us in any way, and was an excellent problem solver whenever life threw anything at us. When I got sick, she immediately put me in touch with a great hospital and the experience went very smoothly. She cares so much about her students and I always felt very supported by her. Even when I felt like my Spanish was plateauing, she was able to keep me motivated and help me. I highly recommend Linguistic Horizons. Thank you so much Nicole!

Nicole runs this beautiful program! I did the internship + program and can say that both have been amazing experiences for me! I came to Peru hoping to understand how herbs and nutritional remedies can be used to treat illness, as I have had a growing distaste of western medicinal philosophy–I left having witnessed that illness can be severely impacted using natural remedies! In addition to the knowledge gain, I met beautiful beautiful people, and Peru is one of the most gorgeous, spectacular places! Both Nicole and Max are great, and I am so grateful for such an experience, if I could, I would do it all over again! Would highly recommend, do it!

This program was by far my favorite travel experience. It gave me full immersion into the culture, let me gain experience in my field, and explore the beautiful landscape of Peru. Every weekday I was at my internship, and on weekends we were always off on an adventure somewhere. The town is also pretty small, which was nice because I wasn't just another tourist. I would do this program again in a heartbeat if I had the chance!

I am so glad that I did this program! The director worked so hard to make sure that the internship was exactly what I wanted and that everything would be a good fit. They also work very hard to make sure that you get the full immersion experience. You're not just an American student in a crowd of American students, you are really experiencing the lifestyle and culture while you are there. The program also cares a lot about it's students. There was always someone available for me when I was there to help me with whatever I needed, which made the experience a lot more comfortable. I would go back in a heartbeat!
