"SamConnects was great. Although I didn't need much support, it was very nice to know it was there. Had I had a problem with my work or my family, it was nice to know that you were involved enough to step in."
"My Spanish improved a lot, I was definitely in an immersion experience so it was fantastic ... I [lived with] someone close to my age so I was always invited to go out. I found I could really connect with people, even in a different language."
"At my placement, I was very well-treated and things were well organized ... I feel I was pretty useful overall. I was very comfortable at my homestay and the food was delicious."
Diego did such a great job, he was hired by his placement site and worked in Chile for 2 years!
