Stuck on where to choose now

<p>Hi,</p>

<p>I've been wanting to go to Spain to study abroad since I was in high school and now the opportunity is here and now I'm not too sure. With Spain's economy not being too hot at the moment and also my cousin said she had a couple of run in with some not so friendly locals whwen she visited spain while she is studying abroad in france right now I'm kind of on the edge. </p>

<p>At the same time I feel like I'm just thinking to much and should just go. I really want to study abroad to see the world but at the same time gain some major experience. Being a business major, a friend of mine and my cousin told me to look into Germany which sounds great too. Or asian countries such as korea and china. Being korean, I don't really feel like going to korea haha. Besides European countries I was wondering if anyone had any great experiences with latin american countries. </p>

<p>Other information would be like, I would like to stay for a whole academic year. Besides that, I would just like some input from others. </p>

<p>thanks</p>

<p>That's interesting, I didn't know many korean students studied abroad. Are you at university in Seoul?</p>

<p>I dunno if you read that wrong, I'm korean but I'm in California attending school at UCR.</p>

<p>So you're already studying abroad!</p>

<p>Brazil's economy is booming. I know many people who have studied abroad there, and they all say it was the best experience of their lives. </p>

<p>Also, if you go to Sao Paulo, you might as well be going to Asia, considering the exorbitant numbers of Japanese and Koreans there lol.</p>

<p>I'm going to be studying abroad there in my junior year, and I can't wait.</p>

<p>The only downside is that you're going to have to learn a new language. Although I would hardly consider that a downside.</p>

<p>I wouldn't let anecdotal evidence dissuade you from your dreams of studying abroad in Spain (and a busted economy usually means better deals for students converting foreign currency). Bad things happen everywhere.</p>

<p>But, if you're interested in other options-- many people at my school go to study in Valparaiso, Chile and love it. They have several universities there, so you should be able to find business related classes. Other of my friends have loved programs in Ecuador and Peru.</p>
