Student Quotes

-From a student studying in San Jose, Costa Rica:
"Immersing myself in the culture has so far proved very interesting and I
think I made a good decision by living with a host family. The weekend
excursions have also proved to be very exciting. . . I did not ever imagine
learning Spanish at such a rapid and intense rate."
