"SO FAR I LOVE THE ONLINE CLASS"
MAKE A DIFFERENCE

--ALICE P, SWEDEN
"The part about mindfulness and meditation blew me away! I had never tried anything like that and now that I have discovered it I do it every day to improve my health."
--MARIKA P, ITALY
"I WAS REALLY ABLE TO DISCOVER THE UNITED STATES"
DISCOVER THE U.S.
"I absolutely loved everything about the Discover the U.S. course, because I was really able to discover the United States in its entirety through culture, history, art, politics, law, geography, and many things that I had no knowledge of."
--WENDY R, COLUMBIA
"I enjoyed the U.S. Geography course the most. It allowed me to virtually explore the U.S. and learn about how geography has impacted U.S. culture. Seeing that I can't leave the house during this pandemic, this course was therapeutic.
--SAMANTHA D, SOUTH AFRICA
"CLASSES ARE MUCH MORE FUN THAT WAY!"
DISCOVER THE U.S.
"I've loved the animated videos and cartoons in the assignments that make a topic like American History or Politics (usually boring) funny, enjoyable, and easy to understand. Classes are much more fun that way!"
--KATHIA S, MEXICO
"My favorite was the COVID-19 Assignment. In fact, this module is not only an emergency in our travel course, but also a problem that people all over the world need to face together. In addition to discussing the public health response of the federal government and the states, this module made me think deeply about everything about the virus, which I think makes a lot of sense."
--XINROU Z, CHINA
"IT IS VERY SATISFYING TO SEE THAT I CAN EXCEED MY PERSONAL LIMITS"
STORYTELLING & FILMMAKING
"I am proud of [my final film], it was fun, my host family and I did it with love, it was a learning experience for both me and them, and I would love to write, direct and act in another short film. It is very satisfying to see that I can exceed my personal limits when writing or directing something.”
--YULIANA N, COLOMBIA
"I learned that there is a lot of detail that goes into filming. The finished products that we see as viewers are the most essential parts of filmmaking. The process of an enjoyable film is the hard work of the workers behind the scenes: directors and screenwriters.”
--SIVUYILE B, SOUTH AFRICA
"THIS COURSE MADE ME LEARN AND BECOME AWARE OF ALL THE ART THAT SURROUNDS US."
ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
"This course made me learn and become aware of all the art that surrounds us and often we do not realize it. I would like to use creativity and be inspired by paying attention to the details of everyday things and create things from it, and start to apply the acquired knowledge such as photography."
--CANDELA A, ARGENTINA
"There was something in every module that I liked. For me the dancing part was the best, just because I love to dance. I think I found my passion for taking pictures in this course and I really feel more confident in that area.
I also liked that at some point I had to come out of my comfort zone and that was really hard in the beginning but I only have positive solutions now!"
--FRANKA H, GERMANY
"THIS ASSIGNMENT MADE ME REALIZE THAT I HAVE TO CHANGE SOMETHING."
EXPLORE OUR ENVIRONMENT
"It was fun to calculate my own Bio-Footprint even if the result was shocking. I learned that my carbon footprint isn't as little as I thought. This assignment made me realize that I have to change something.”
--SONJA B, GERMANY
"I found it so interesting to learn about human involvement in the extinction but also the conservation of animals and plants. The whole course has been put together so well. Every video and activity made me really learn something.”
--SANNE H, NETHERLANDS
