“I felt so wonderfully well there. Academia Tica is a paradise of a school with the most fantastic teachers I have ever met! When is the last time you were excited to go to school and learn new things?”
Helena studied with us between April and June, 2013. She sent us this beautiful heart-moving testimony. Thank you Helena!
“Costa Rica! What should I say about it? It’s Paradise on Earth…
I went to this wonderful country to improve my knowledge of Spanish without knowing I was going to Paradise! I chose it in the catalogue of ESL-Séjours linguistiques in Belgium because Spain seemed too close to home and I had heard that the Spanish spoken in Costa Rica is the best of Latin America.
Since I came back to Europe I miss Costa Rica so much because I felt so well there. It is a small country wedged between Nicaragua and Panamá and two of the biggest oceans: the Pacific and the Atlantic. Since 1948, this country doesn´t have an army, which is also positive and the inhabitants are so nice.
I stayed at a host family for eight weeks and I absolutely didn´t want to go home. I felt so wonderfully well there. Academia Tica is a paradise of a school with the most fantastic teachers I have ever met! When is the last time you were excited to go to school and learn new things?
It has been now two months I have left Costa Rica and the Academia Tica and I have had new adventures since then but I always have a twitch in my heart and become sad when I think about my own paradise and me not being there.
It is a country where it is really easy to travel even as a single young lady. You can enjoy a lot of great adventures and take the most wonderful pictures.
If you have any doubt about Academia Tica and Costa Rica, swipe it away. It is a great experience if you live close to of far from Paradise!
So, don´t forget your passport, book your plane ticket and your classes at Academia Tica and off you go to the greatest adventure ever!
¡Costa Rica, te quiero mucho y nunca te olvido!”
