What They Are Saying

"After visiting the internship sites in Quito, I was inspired to send more students on this study abroad experience. The educational and internship opportunities provide Kinesiology majors, as well as other students, an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience while learning Spanish and engaging the Ecuadorian culture. Don't miss out on a life-changing semester abroad!"

Dr. Eric Sorenson
Kinesiology Program Director
Azusa Pacific University

"Azusa Pacific has sent many students with Living and Learning International. I could not be more pleased with every aspect of the program. The top quality academic offerings, great internship opportunities, the cultural experiences, the whole-person development model they espouse, all lead to a once-in-a-lifetime experience for students to develop as culturally competent Christians. Their attention to detail related to housing, in-country experiences, safety and security, leadership, and more, make LLI one of best study abroad options I am aware of."
