Conversa Intensive Spanish, Costa Rica Summer
Santa Ana , Costa Rica (North America / Latin America)
"From the first day I arrived in Santa Ana to the day I left I was immersed in Spanish-- not only in school with the professors, but also with Roma my host mom, Venado the taxi driver, Dennis the dance instructor, the woman at the bakery, the people sitting next to me on the bus, the pastor at church. I went from knowing how to read and write some Spanish to being able to understand and communicate. I know the time I spent at Conversa was the best possible thing I could have done for my Spanish, and I can't wait to get back some day."
"Although culture shock is frightening and overwhelming, I believe it is something that will allow me to grow as a person. Everything about this country is completely different than what I'm use to, but for some reason it all feels right. No one is in a hurry to get no where, or constantly on their phone, or eager to think of ways to get out of a conversation. Everyone is just grateful for every day they are alive. It means not stressing about the little things or having a bad attitude. "
