"2002 Study Abroad Program in Costa Rica"


Imagine … learning Spanish on a tropical beach as waves from the
                        Pacific Ocean roll in,


…hiking through a jungle where white-faced monkeys and toucans abound,


…getting to know new friends in their language instead of your own,


…living in a different place, trying new foods and discovering favorite hangouts.


Below are pictures taken during the 2002 WSC Costa Rica Program. The 19 participants in the program were in Costa Rica between June 3 and July 3. Students lived with Costa Rican families and took Spanish language and Hispanic civilization classes taught by a WSC professor. For more information about the Costa Rica Program, contact Dr. Adolfo Cacheiro.
