May 2015, 21 year-old Andreas from Denmark visited our Spanish school in Sámara. He already had an advanced Spanish level and participaed in our advanced level, which he says, was a very good experience. Even though he only took one week of classes, he has learned a lot. Read below in Danish what he has to say about his whole experience:

 

Two Weeks In…

I am in a little different situation than many Intercultura students in that, last November I sold everything I owned and moved to Samara Beach from Colorado Springs, CO. 

Not only is Maria an excellent and experienced Spanish teacher at our Samara Beach Campus, but also she is an artist and has painted some of our school walls.

"I never felt like I had the talent or that I could do the things I do now. I think many people are the same, but life always gave me situations that were leading me to do waht I do," she said.

We have started a new Facebook campaign at our Heredia City Campus, called "Intercultura es Gente" (Intercultura is People).  

About the campaign: It's a sort of a catalogue about personal experiences which show the variety and beauty of mankind. It shows how a place can unite people, experiences, perspectives, objectives...lives.

I’d been in Costa Rica for two months already. I’d seen lava coming out of Arenal volcano, looked at a quetzal through binoculars in Monteverde rainforest, sped down a zipline in the jungle canopy, and of course, seen monkeys on the beach at Manuel Antonio. What I hadn’t done was go off the beaten path, so I suggested to my roommate Jill that we take a trip up to the very un-visited town of Upala up by the Nicaraguan border, and see what we could see.

For Alison from Oregon, USA, Intercultura in Heredia was the perfect setting to study Spanish. "During the week I could completely focus on my language learning. Since Heredia isn´t a big tourist destination there are fewer English speakers so I was forced to use my Spanish navigating through the city, going restaurants and shops and of course going dancing.

I decided to move to Costa Rica without ever having been to Latin America. "This is the way to learn Spanish!" I told myself. I planned on giving it a year (maybe two, and then I'd be headed back to the US.

Six years later and I'm still living it up here in the rich coast, (and I speak Spanish!).
