Taking this course in Costa Rica offers the unique opportunity to attend classes in a Spanish speaking environment while spending three weeks at the home of a Costa Rican family. Real life materials such as Costa Rican newspapers and Spanish Language films and music are used together with the traditional textbooks to offer a variety of language resources. Class assignments are designed so that the students can reflect on the experiences of the trip and learn more about the country, its culture and its people.
