June 1 - June 28, 2008


Louisiana TechCosta Rica offers students the opportunity to experience true cultural and language immersion while living in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Students will be amazed to see a country which offers the variety of climate, vegetation, and wildlife that Costa Rica does. San José, the site for the study abroad program, is located in the heart of Central America, surrounded by immaculate beaches and exotic rainforests. Costa Rica is also one of the most politically and economically stable countries in Latin America.

The Program:



Students are in Costa Rica for four weeks, earning 6 hours of credits at the 200, 300 or 400 level. The program consists of 4 hours daily of Spanish classes at the renowned Forester Institute. The classes offer an intermediate and advanced view into Spanish grammar, while incorporating conversational and cultural studies as well. Class size is limited to 6 students or less, creating an optimal learning environment where students are able to maintain continual interaction with their professor. Outside of the classroom, students continue their education through a series of day excursions. These excursions take students to tops of volcanoes, through rainforests, and into small, countryside towns.

Living in Costa Rica:



Students are placed in double occupancy rooms with carefully selected families, where they will continue practicing and learning Spanish outside of the classroom while sharing in the everyday life of a Costa Rican family. The family will provide two meals daily and laundry service.
