For the Summer before my junior year I decided to study abroad in Spain for a month. There I took a pledge, where i was to only speak Spanish for my entire time there. In Granada I took history classes to learn about the culture there. I got the opportunity to go around town as well, and fully become immersed in the culture. This was the longest I had ever been out of the country, and it gave me the experience of living in a new country for a month, begin part of the culture, and meeting new people.
