Ailola Spanish School

I was really satisfied with my decision to study Spanish at Ailola Buenos Aires. It is located in one of the most impressive buildings in Buenos Aires, Palacio Barolo. The office staff did an incredible job at making you feel welcome. They assisted me in a lot of things and helped me to get the most out of my stay. Also the teachers did an incredible job und finally I can use the subjuntivo correctly. They always tried to align my classes with my personal interests. I can highly recommend this school to anyone who thinks about learning Spanish in Buenos Aires.

CSA - Center for Study Abroad

The content of the course was different then was visible on the CSA website.
Complaining about that was not successful. The complaints were NOT handled. I was referred to the third party. I don't have a contract with the third party but with CSA.
Complaints are NOT handled properly.

Projects Abroad

Summer 2016 I had the opportunity to go on the shark conservation project based in Fiji. From the beginning, I felt welcomed and adapted to being out of the states with ease because all of the volunteers were so welcoming including the staff. The staff members were especially great and very supportive if a volunteer encountered a problem or needed help. In addition, if a volunteer ever felt as though they didn't have a sufficient amount of workload the staff would always be willing to allow the volunteers to become more involved with extra work and more responsibility. The project enabled me to step out of my comfort zone and meet many new people from all around the world and even from places near my home. For the volunteers that live near me, I am still friends with them and plan to continue my PADI certifications with them. To be completely honest, this project was my first time traveling independently overseas which can be daunting but there was never a time where I was unhappy with the project. What's not to love about diving every week, fascinating workshops, AWARE shark course, and local village visits? I forgot to mention the incredible shark dives with sometimes fifty or more bull sharks. I recommend this project because it has been an amazing experience for me personally in respect to making new friends, going on survey dives, learning new information from the workshops, and much more.

Our Shark Conservation Project in Fiji is certainly a one of a kind program and we are glad you were able to join us in it! An important aspect of the volunteering abroad experience is the friends you make who share the same interest of helping out the planet, so it's great that you are planning on keeping in touch with them! Thank you for trusting Projects Abroad, come back anytime :)

RCDP Nepal

This program has given me an experience like none other. In the past few weeks, I have been exposed to different cultures, foods, and people that I would never have come across back home. This experience could not have been possible without the help of so many individuals at RCDP Nepal, and I believe that this program has done a near perfect job in ensuring my experience here in Nepal has been as beneficial as possible. When you travel to a new place, there is a certain amount of freedom necessary if you want to truly immerse yourself in the culture. However,.traveling in a foreign country alone can be dangerous, especially for young people. RCDP provides the perfect balance of guidance and freedom in order to make this experience as amazing as it is. I would recommend this program to anyone who wishes to see a completely new part of the world at a relatively low cost.

RCDP Nepal

This three weeks have been great. The family welcome us very nicely and the people in Chitwan and in the program have been very nice. I recommend this trip to everyone because apart of being a new experience I have learn a lot not only about culture but also generally about life.
