Traveling to Costa Rica for my Spanish Studies Abroad Was the Best Decision I’ve Ever Made.

What’s the way to have the most wonderful experience of your life? I had no idea until I travelled to Costa Rica with CRLA for my Spanish studies abroad. The best part about travelling to learn a language has been that it’s not just about the language, but about making new friends while immersing myself in a new language and culture, and that’s why I posted a photo album of all the fun I had with my new friends.

“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 in taking the first steps. 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.

If I have the opportunity, I think I definitely come back! Coming to Costa Rica all the way from Belgium, one of the best things about CRLA has been the number of ways there are to participate in the culture and make new friends.
