Reilly Quirk I chose ACM Costa Rica above all of the other Spanish-speaking programs I came across because of its intense focus on full language immersion and the ability to experience different facets of the country by living with multiple host families in different areas of the country. This experience helped me grow as an individual and as a student. I learned so much more than I had the opportunity to experience within the walls of my college Spanish classrooms, and I returned to the United States with lifelong friends and "familia" from around the world.
