"This has been an indescribable experience that I will always cherish in my heart. It has helped me grow not only in my teaching, but in my personal development and self-discovery from the variety of people I've met and the challenges I faced. Costa Rica and my time volunteering with Teach & Learn will stay with me for the rest of my life."
"Deciding to come to Costa Rica to teach English was one of the best things I ever did. It was a great experience and I gained much more than just knowledge of a new language and teaching skills. I learned so much from the culture and I built relationships with the students that I will never forget."
"If you're struggling with deciding whether or not to go to Costa Rica then I can tell you the answer should be 100% yes. I had never worked with kids before and this experience was a truly something new for me. The kids were amazing and the staff were really friendly. I made so many friends and had so much fun with the other volunteers every weekend. I can't recommend Teach & Learn enough!"
"When once asked to describe Costa Rica in one word, my answer was quickly “simple.” This word might have a poor connotation to some, but I believe it to be a compliment. Since I have been in Costa Rica, my appreciation for the beauty surrounding me has grown into an overall appreciation for life. I formed many different types of relationships during my stay here, many friendships, both with those my own age, and with the students in the classroom. Grecia is a very small community where everyone will do their best to make you feel welcome. I will forever view this experience as one of the best of my life."
"So much fun and the best two months of my life. I left Grecia with not only new friends and the experience of living in a new culture but also with a huge sense of achievement. The kids really made me feel welcome and treated me not only as a teacher but as a friend. The accommodation was really nice and so was the food. There is so much to do in your free time that you will be overwhelmed. The only thing is I wish I could have stayed another month."
