EF was a huge disappointment for me. I would not recommend this to anyone. Even in the predeparture process EF offered little to no support or assistance, did not offer a range of living arrangements, or customize the learning experience. Initally I felt the price was reasonable, $15 000, for 9 months in Barcelona, but the difficulties I had and the compromises I was required to make, caused me to rethink travelling with them. In the end I believe I would have been very dissapointed in EF if I would have stayed with them. There are too many better organizations to travel with than EF, they have made their money by being the biggest and loudest competitor not the best. Look at your options before commiting to EF, please.
