What is your background?
I am 21 years old and am studying medicine in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
Do you travel abroad often?
I travel abroad at least once a year. Since 2005, I have been to the US 3 times, once to Canada, and I'm currently on my third trip to Europe.
Have you studied abroad?
I've studied abroad for a month in Vancouver, Canada.
Which languages do you speak or have studied?
I speak Portuguese, have studied English since I was 8 years old, and have been studying Spanish since 2010.
How and why did you decide to Study Abroad?
There are several agencies in my town that promote study abroad trips.
A great thing about the program here is that we have the ability to get to know more about Spanish culture. The "normal" classes are fun, we learn grammar while talking a lot. And at the culture classes, we can relax while talking, watching Spanish movies, reading Spanish poems, etc.
