Ruth Hoff, Assoc. Professor of Languages, Wittenberg University For me, the program was an ideal blend of academics and intense experiential learning. I still have vivid memories of picking coffee alongside my host sister, sleeping on the same beach where giant sea turtles were laying their eggs, hiking through rainforests, and tasting raw cacao for the first time. These experiences have stayed with me through the years and inform my passion for teaching Spanish today.
