Admissions: Life in CR: San José: Local Churches

By becoming active in one of the many local churches in the neighborhood, students are able to better understand the attitudes, needs and beliefs of their brothers and sisters in Christ.

Participation can include not only worshiping on Sundays but also mid-week fellowship, prayer and even ministry. The amount of Spanish one knows is not nearly as important as a willingness to show interest and offer support by simply being present.

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.
