Are you interested in studying in Costa Rica with WIU?
The Western Illinois Spanish Experience-Costa Rica program (WISE Costa Rica) offers a four-week immersion (in June 2014) in Spanish language and culture while also providing on-site guidance and mentoring by a Department of Foreign Languages faculty member. Excursions and tours of historical and cultural sites provide a greater understanding of Costa Rican history and culture. Lodging with host families improves your Spanish proficiency and gives you opportunities to make life-long connections. Extracurricular activities such as Costa Rican cooking, Tropical Dance lessons, and yoga classes allow you to explore other facets of Costa Rican culture and interact with your fellow WIU and Veritas students. Students from all majors are welcome to apply, even those without prior experience in Spanish.
There will be another meeting for interested students on Tuesday, November 12, 3:30-4:30 PM in Morgan Hall 3330. At the meeting we will discuss things such as classes, excursions, home stay accommodations, scholarships available, the application process, and much more.Please see our program website here.
