“There were cultures and people that I had never encountered, things I had never experienced before. It was something you could not just read about in a book or watch in a movie. It had to be known through experience. And even though we were on the computer, it felt like I was there!” — Nicole, participant, World Learning’s The Experiment Digital

“Before The Experiment Digital, I used to feel scared when it came to talking in a foreign language. But through the activities, discussions, and homestays, I got over that feeling and improved my speaking skills.” — Rafik, participant, World Learning’s The Experiment Digital
