It has been a dream of mine for a very long time to live in another country! Now, my parents insist that I must finish my college education before I pick up and move to another country. However, I've discovered that I can have the best of both worlds! I can work on my college degree while I am living in another amazing and beautiful country! While in Costa Rica, I will be able to take four months of intensive Spanish courses for a total of four Spanish courses. These classes, paired with living in a Spanish-speaking environment, will greatly improvement my Spanish-speaking skills and allow me to converse in another language. This has always been such a passion of mine in order to connect on another level with an entirely different culture than my own.
