Lindsay - Costa Rica

The best part of my trip was how much I learned within my classes, as well as outside of my classrooms. It honestly pays off to speak with locals and different people while you're out and about the town... And zip lining was AWESOME!!!

The Department of Foreign Languages coordinates a study abroad program for intensive Spanish language study (SPAN 200 and SPAN 300) that is specifically designed to provide students with an immersion experience. Students receive four hours of language instruction per day at Conversa Language Center in Santa Ana, Costa Rica. For additional cultural experiences, students live with Costa Rican families and have the option of participating in excursions.
