Cassidy Heller I really enjoyed my time on the ACM Costa Rica program. I definitely learned the most from living with my host family. My Spanish speaking skills increased tremendously from communicating with them. They also taught me so much about Costa Rican culture and how families operate. And they did such a great job of taking care of me while I was away from home!
