U. S. Postage Stamps

People returning to the States are usually willing to take letters to be mailed. To take advantage of this, bring a supply of postage stamps with you (for letters and post cards). However, postage from Costa Rica to the U.S. is less expensive and mail usually arrives within 5-7 days. It may be noteworthy to add that some students have even paid their bills by check from here without any problems.

Ashley Orlando
(Class of ’06)

I attended the Institute in 2006 for a month when I was studying abroad in Costa Rica through the Latin America Studies Program (LASP) with Anthony Chamberlain.
My courses at the Institute were an invaluable help for me as I transitioned from learning Spanish in the classroom setting to speaking with native-speakers. I still remember many of the things I learned from those classes.
