8. Is there something you'd like to add?
I recommend the students to learn Spanish but also to learn about the culture. Here the costaricans are very polite and kind people, who like to talk with foreigners. This country has beautiful places to do tourism like mountains, beaches and culture. They will love Costa Rica and their people and will learn about the "Pura Vida". 
Pura Vida means pure life, be relax and enjoy!
