My International Experience

Type: Study

name of organization/institution: GEOS Language Academy
where? Canada
when? 22/01/2010 until 21/03/2010
brief explanation: When I decided I should have an experience abroad, I wasn't really sure about where to go. Later on, I decided to go to Toronto, ON, Canada. I went there, at first, to improve my english skills, but as the time went by, I found out my greatest learning happened as I had the opportunity to meet amazing people from all over the world and learn about their different cultures and share all kinds of experiences, from partying to volunteering for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. I had the time of my life! And I can certainly say those two months I spent abroad really changed my life and turned me into a much better person.
would I do it again? Absolutely!
