What our students are saying…
The intensive Spanish courses paired with home-stay were an excellent way to learn Spanish and actively practice. Weekends off offered an incredible opportunity to explore Costa Rica
I loved being in the Emergency Department surrounded by Spanish-speaking physicians and patients. It was a fully-immersive experience that greatly improved my medical Spanish.
Gracias por todo. No tengo las palabras para expresar cuanto me gusta mi experiencia y cuanto quiero volver pronto.
