My Travel Story

by: Robin Coleman Start Date: Jul 12, 2017 - End Date: Apr 7, 2018
As you may know, I have been studying Spanish since the 6th Grade at Chinook Middle School. I plan to continue my Spanish education at Bellevue High School and beyond. My ultimate goal is to become bilingual just like my mom and uncle. High school is going to be such an exciting time with new adventures that will push me to learn more.

I am so fortunate to be given the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica and Nicaragua next Spring Break. I will be travelling with friends and other students in the 8th grade at Chinook Middle School and 9th grade at Bellevue High School through an awesome company called Xperitas. This particular program is exciting because it is a complete language immersion that will completely transform my Spanish education. On this trip, we will be kayaking around las isletas in Lake Nicaragua, hiking to different volcanos, relaxing on the beach in Junquillal Reserve in Costa Rica, learn how to salsa dance, and maybe even take a pottery class. But the coolest experience of all, will be the 4 days at the end of the trip where I get to live with a Costa Rican family. I am so excited for this adventure and to be challenged to grow as a person.
