Sol Education Abroad: Argentina

I feel I offer a unique perspective into the study abroad experience. I studied in Buenos Aires, Argentina for an 11-week program. The first half of my program I took advanced Spanish courses, my second half I took Argentine Literature and Latin American History, both of which were taught entirely in Spanish. I have experience in studying entirely in other languages other than English and I studied in an unpopular country for my program. While abroad I wanted to challenge myself as much as I could and I hope to continue to do that even after finishing my program.  

In my case, I am a low-income student that never thought it would be economically feasible to study in a different country. Students at UNT need to know it is possible to study in different countries.
