Ahlo - Santiago

Sara Ahlo

Portugal, Political Sciences

I decided to come to Chile because I heard of the prestige of this institution, and being here, I enjoyed the closeness that is generated within classrooms with teachers. Some say that the teachers are critical with students, but still, all opinions are valued. In Portugal it is difficult for a teacher to know your name, whereas in Chile, all teachers knew the students in the course. While in Santiago, I realized the great potential Chile offers for easy transfer to other countries in the region, and break the language barrier of learning Spanish. I feel that this experience changed my life. Today I can travel around the world without problems because I can speak the language. Chile taught me to speak Spanish and opened the doors to Latin America for me.
