This whole experience is a great help to my confidence in speaking Spanish. I will be using Spanish in my new profession as a law enforcement officer and working with my teacher reinacting real life situations is valuable to me.

This trip filled in many Spanish gaps for me. Though it was difficult to communicate at first, the teachers and family helped me to better my communication ability.
