Hey guys! I'm setting up this thread for people to talk bout the 2012-2013 NSLI-Y program. Here is the place to talk about where you want to go abroad, for how long, etc. Also if you've already been please spread light on what it's like, where you went, etc.
I was wondering what programs are you going to try for? Also if you have gone, where did you go and what was your experience like?
I'm currently a sophomore and would be going my Junior year. I'm studying chinese at my school and in my second year but, my ability is that of someone whose studied like a month. Hopefully I'd inprove in China. I haven't gone abroad before but I hope to study Chinese or Arabic.(or any or the others cause they all seem fantastic!) I would like to go for the yearlong session but I might only be able to go for a Summer. Either way it's bound to be fun!
For those of you who don't know, NSLI-Y is the National Security Initiative for Youth, a high school foreign exchange, or study abroad program that sponsors students to learn critical languages. They have Summer and Yearlong programs with languages like Chinese, Arabic, Persian, Russian and I think Korean.
