" Ireland opened my eyes to the values of study abroad programs in education! To be able to read a simple poem that can seem rather boring in class, but then read it in the setting that the author wrote it, you just appreciate it ten times more. And that's what learning should be like; to fully immerse yourself in the setting and culture of early writers furthers the knowledge and understanding in each student like no other. "
