Program Reviews:
Summer - Two Months 2012 Participant
The intensive language summer program was well taught and I felt that it allowed me to achieve all my language goals. The program also offers a high level of independence for students. For me this meant that I was able to learn how to manage a lot of new cultural and practical situations on my own, which was very rewarding.

Summer - One Month 2016 Participant
It's ok if you have no idea what's going on, you will figure it out eventually. Participate in every activity that is offered to you to meet the people of Costa Rica. They are all super cool.

Emma Rose Ramirez, Summer - Two Months 2016 Participant
Studying and traveling abroad is such a rewarding experience but can be very unpredictable. Be prepared for anything, but also embrace the moment and experience when it doesn't all go as planned.
