  • Patrick Busby, USA, Boquete

    The school and Avelina have been a pleasure. I hope to return someday and speak fluent Spanish. This has been a great experience for me. I have learned more than I expected too. I hope to return and continue my Spanish language education. Maribel and Avelina have been so helpful.

    Estamos muy agradecidos por la estancia y la hospitabilidad que nos habeís ofrecido tanto en Bocas del Toro como en Turrialba. Spanish at Locations es sin lugar a dudas uno de los pocos lugares donde se siente uno en casa y en el paraíso!
