Zachary Steedman My time on the ACM Costa Rica fall program was easily the most enjoyable part of my four years at college. Just by being there I learned a lot about myself, tremendously improved my Spanish, and got to see a lot of the country in my free time. Without a doubt the program is unique in that it provides the opportunity to live with two separate host families, and I left feeling as if I was, and still am, a genuine part of each family. I have absolutely no complaints about the program and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking to make true genuine relationships with his or her host families as I did.
