Social Work Program
Hace 2 semanas llegué a Costa Rica. Cuando yo comencé la escuela CPI yo no sabía nada de español, pero con las profesoras grandes como Judith y María, ahora yo puedo hablar español. Yo hablo con la gente que vive en Heredia sin vergüenza.
Estoy muy feliz por la experiencia aquí en CPI. Yo puedo continuar estudiando español con confianza cuando yo regrese a Washington DC. Gracias CPI por todas las cosas, yo voy a extrañarlos a ustedes
I learned an immense amount in Spanish class and speaking in only Spanish for the 4 hours of classes. Being taught by Professor Judith was a gift; she is beyond excellent! I appreciated her knowledge of the social service system in Costa Rica. The work with CRHF was excellent!
I really enjoyed class time. I feel like it was great practice speaking completely in spanish during class. The books and resources will be a huge help to me now that I am back at work.
I also loved that the weekend excursion was included in the package. Arenal was amazing!!!
I had a great time in Costa Rica. The staff at CPI were incredibly helpful and supportive! My host family was fabulous! The overall experience was unforgetable and I am already planning my next trip!!
Thank you for everything!!
My two weeks in the Social Work Seminar program in Costa Rica was a life changing experience that no words can describe. The integration of gramar and seminar classes in relation to social work combined with volunteer work in a local poverty stricken area really tied together all elements of social work: theory and practice. I feel more equipped to communicate and develop a positive rapport with Latino/a clients, and I have a better understanding of the diversity of challenges faced within this community. Thanks CPI for my memorable visit and making my time in Costa Rica fulfilling and rewarding!
