#interculturaesgente

Intercultura is all about its people, and that is not just our staff and our host mothers, but also about our students.

This week’s #interculturaesgente post is about Patrick from Boston who studied Spanish for 4 weeks at our Heredia campus in May. As usual we asked him our "famous" five questions. :-)

Discover historic Heredia

  • The historic city of Heredia was one of the first cities settled by Spanish immigrants in the 1700s, although it had long been inhabited by the local tribe called the Huétares. The church in the Central Park, dating from 1797, is one of the oldest, still-functioning churches in the country (along with those of Cartago, Nicoya and Barva).

 

Seraina and Aurelia, two sisters from Switzerland, spent 4 weeks at our Spanish school in Playa Sámara and enjoyed their time to the fullest. They particularly enjoyed the time together with their hostfamily.

Homestay mother Alice shares a house with her daughter Estefanía and his grandson Matías.

The sisters left a heart-warming note for them in Spanish:

We love to support Spanish learning blogs that provide great articles in Spanish. We find them to be helpful for Spanish learners who are looking for sources to read and practice their Spanish.

This week’s #interculturaesgente post is all about Majed from Saudi Arabia and his travelings through Latin America. This time we asked the following questions:

Why do you want to learn Spanish?

A former student and colleague shares his re-entry impressions and a few notes on his final days in Heredia..

It was so great to see everyone at the school this past week. I finally got a chance to say hello to Jerry. I thoroughly enjoyed the excursions that he led to the Doka Estate coffee farm and the La Paz Waterfall Gardens.

I was sad to leave the country yesterday. Here a few quick notes to share:

Students are sometimes confused about the requirement for yellow fever vaccination. We will clarify it for you!

Are you in your 50s or already retired and wonder what it´s like to learn Spanish overseas for someone in your age or even to travel around the world?

You are ready for your volunteer adventure abroad, but the truth is you have no idea what it really means and what to expect?

We at Intercultura have many years of experience with volunteers and volunteer work and can tell you – out of our personal experience and from our job monitoring and accompanying volunteers – what you should be ready for and what we want you to know before taking off!
