“One of the strongest parts of my program was that the Spanish instruction was tailored to my individual need. I was able to learn Spanish in a way that allowed me to accelerate my skills quickly. I also reached a new level of confidence that will now enable me to apply for a job I want that requires Spanish language skills.

“I can’t say enough about the enjoyable and meaningful program Immersion Abroad Costa Rica provided for our students. Odilie gathered a great deal of information about us and the kind of program we were looking for, and then she and her staff organized a month full of experiences that promoted tremendous cultural, personal and linguistic growth. We participated in numerous exciting excursions and activities, such as the visits to the volcano and the coffee farm, and getting to know some of the local students, both in school and out. The best part, though, was living with local families – everyone lived Costa Rican culture up close and personal, and was immensely grateful they had the opportunity to do so.”

“Immersion Abroad Costa Rica (IACR) is an absolute joy to partner with! They worked with our group to accommodate all of our scheduling requests, and they executed our 10-day tour flawlessly. The families IACR works with for the homestay placements are kind and welcoming, just like most everyone we met during our stay in Costa Rica. I am overjoyed to be able to work with IACR in the future, and I am looking forward to my next visit to Costa Rica!”

“The overall experience in Costa Rica I will remember for the rest of my life. I better understand the Latin culture and increased my vocabulary and conversational skills. I’ve done things I’ve never done before like hike and swim in waterfalls, ride a horse in the rainforest, and pick and eat ripe mangos right off a tree. I am now a much more well-rounded individual.”
