Heidi Skrukrud If you are enthusiastic about learning Spanish, this program is perfect--you will be challenged rather than frustrated. Before ACM Costa Rica I had never lived in a big city, taken a bus or taxi, or lived with another family. My experience was fun and not stressful because ACM taught me everything and was there to support me whenever I needed help. I met many Costa Ricans and I also got to know my own culture and generation better through three months of close proximity with my US classmates. It was a perfect introduction on how to get along in a foreign country.
