What past interns have thought about us:
When I was asked if I would like to come teach English in Costa Rica, it was not a difficult decision to make. Of course, I wanted to go! It was a great experience and I gained much more than the knowledge of the language. I learned so much about the culture, which is so different from that in the United States. I built relationships with the students that I will never forget. I was accepted into a new family, one that I will always be a part of no matter how far away I am. This is definitely an experience I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a new adventure.
I loved my time in Costa Rica. Working with the children was a great experience that I will always treasure. I learnt so much from my time at the project and developed new skills in teaching and also Spanish. During my time I felt like a member of the community and made so many frienships with fellow volunteers, colleagues and students alike. It is an experience that I will never be able to forget.
