A Day at Intercultura

Published Lynne Farrugia on Monday, February 26, 2018

8am – 12pm Class

 

- Each student is placed into the class best suited to his personal level of proficiency, which is evaluated by a brief, one-on-one conversation in Spanish with a professor.

 

- Classes are completely in Spanish from the beginning.  When questions arise, the teacher slowly and patiently explains in Spanish until we understand, or shows us the word on Google Images.

 

- There are no more than 6 people per class.  Because of such an intimate class size, we and the teacher were quickly able to learn each other’s names, and are able to explore questions/topics/vocabulary as they came up naturally rather than stick to a stringent curriculum.

 

- We were given a helpful workbook created by Intercultura.

 

- Each day our class time alternates between morning and afternoon.  This is ideal for being able to catch some high tides and explore Samara at different times of the day.

 

Breaks

 

- We are given two 15-minute breaks throughout class.

 

- It is a time to enjoy the beautiful beach-side campus, including hammocks, wifi, and complimentary coffee and tea.

 

- It is an opportunity to meet and practice Spanish with fellow students from all over the world.

  

12 pm Lunch

 

- Everyday at lunch, a local Tica woman sells plates of delicious homemade Costa Rican food.

 

4pm City tour of Samara

 

- We were given recommendations and shown the most necessary places around town.

 

- Samara has been described as “the black hole of happiness.”  Because of its laid-back vibe, friendly people, perfect weather, and natural beauty many people who come here never leave.

 

5pm New student meet and greet

 

- An energetic meet and greet with refreshments

 

5:30 pm Latin Dance Class

 

- And to finish out the day, we learned some Latin dance at sunset.  Like all activities at Intercultura, it was taught in Spanish.
