Actually I arrived at the Colle's the evening of the 14th day. Juan was waiting for me at the bus terminal and the rest of the family at home.
They gave me a tour and thorough overview of the program, including attending a literature class. From what I saw, I highly recommend it to college students with intermediate competence in the language to experience either the intensive Spanish month-long program or an entire semester abroad.
I recently cane across a great prayer by the seventeenth century mathematician/physicist/theologian, Blaise Pascal, whose name the university bears:
"Lord, help me to do great things as though they were little, since I do them with Your power; and little things as though they were great, since I do them in Your name."
