  19. 19. An experience better than I had anticipated. The Tesol program in Mexico was much better and much more enriching than I had expected. The homestay was incredible and one of my favorite parts. The school, Olé, made me feel at home and at ease within the first 20 minutes. They were over the top with their helpfulness, kindness and hospitality. Every staff member there made it a point to personally connect with everyone of us and make us feel like a part of a family.
  20. 20. Life Improving Experience. From the moment we arrived, I felt that Olé Language School had things organized and they were attentive to the students and instructors. The instructors from WWU were also very helpful at all times. They made themselves available for support and did a great job mentoring us.
  21. 21. Wait..I have to come home? No! This was seriously a phenomenal experience, the staff and teachers at Ole were incredibly inviting and nice. The food, oh the Mexican food, I am not sure I will ever be the same! It was incredible! My mentor teacher at the University in Queretaro was so helpful and encouraging. The home stay families were all incredibly nice and took such good care of us. I never once felt uncomfortable walking alone around Queretaro, and I have made friends I will never forget. I did not want to come home, which shows how amazing this experience was!
