Since I arrived in Costa Rica, I have been studying Spanish each week at Mesoamérica: Instituto de Idiomas. I began with taking classes every weekday from 8am-12pm. Then when teaching began at St. Francis I started to take classes three days a week: Mondays (3pm-5pm), Wednesdays (3pm-5pm) and Fridays (1pm-5pm). Now with my current teaching schedule, I am only able to go to classes on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3pm-5pm). Here are photos of the school:

Ligia (my professor) and I!
She is a great teacher and helps the students to learn what they would like to learn. For example, we review common prayers, the parts of the Mass, and the responses of the Mass in Spanish little by little.
Here you can see three posters made by Ligia on gender. I am very bad at gender in Spanish and one day I said, "Can we please go over this again, because I am so confused?" And we did! As you may be able to tell they are hanging in my room and were there for two weeks as I practiced gender.
Here is a close-up of one of the posters, this one is on the Feminine gender!
