It was the community location that first attracted us. Both over sixty, we did not want to feel back in regular school. But the atmosphere was so welcoming and friendly, that learning seemed easy. We went to northern Costa Rica after our beginners’ class. Being able to speak Spanish made a noticeable difference. We were able to understand guides and ask questions since most locals have limited English. They appreciated our efforts and were always respectful and instructive. And we felt like visitors in their home rather than tourists. Thank you, Monica! You were a great teacher for two anxious beginners. Your availability to answer questions and the sense that all our mistakes were chances to learn, made a difference.
