The final countdown to Costa Rica has officially began; I leave for the airport in exactly four hours! I am a little nervous, but beyond excited to get the trip underway! I cannot wait to meet my host family because they seem really nice, and from the pictures they posted on the website, their house looks great!
For anyone that doesn’t know me, my name is Tori Cook and I’m a senior at McKendree. I am dual majoring in Spanish and Psychology with a Clinical and Counseling minor. I will be studying in Heredia, at the La Universidad Latina, for five weeks; the two classes I plan to take are Oral and Written Expression as well as Phonetics and Phonology, so that should be fun. I’m a little bit worried about my speaking abilities, but I can’t wait to learn more and improve. I’m not sure yet about Internet access, but I will post as much as possible!
Hasta la proxima!
