My stay in Costa Rica is by far the most wonderful experience I’ve had in my life until now! For more than 6 months I looked forward to these two months, and I couldn’t have imagined it better than this!
From the first day, CRLA helped me with all my questions or worries. And thanks to them I only needed 4 weeks to learn to understand and express a lot in Spanish! I know I’m not there yet, but my Spanish teacher helped me taking the first step. I really appreciate how much patience he had with me and how he found new ways every single day to get the most out of me. He didn’t only teach me a lot about the Spanish language but told me a lot about Costa Rican culture too, which I’m really grateful for.
I would have liked to stay longer and take more weeks of Spanish classes but right now I’m really happy I feel confident enough to go and learn more through speaking with native Spanish speakers! For example, for my volunteer project I was at an orphanage and I learned a lot of vocabulary by talking to the kids.
In the school I’ve made friends from all over the world, and the most amazing thing is that they are all super open-minded. With these friends I’ve had the chance to discover every weekend a new part of Costa Rica, and I’ve really enjoyed it!
I’m sure this experience will change the way I look at things back in my country and I will never forget how helpful everyone was here and how everyone tried to give me the best time possible!
If I have the opportunity I definitely come back!!
