Columbia-Led Programs


"What I didn't know was how helpful all the locals would be as I gained command of the language. In addition, I got to experience the carioca culture: drinking coconuts on Ipanema beach while conversing with Brazilians, strolling through the colorful streets of Santa Teresa and marveling at the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises in the world."
