ILISA is a great way to immerse yourself in a new environment, it is a safe experience that I enjoyed a lot!
I first considered ILISA after reading about Costa Rica; I wanted to study Spanish to learn a new language in a good country. There is no better way to experience something you want to do than by doing it. I would strongly recommend ILISA because it is a great opportunity to learn and grow. You will improve your ability to speak a foreign language, you will be part of another culture and even learn more about your own ways. ILISA offers professional people that care to teach you their language. Also, you will have the option to take part in cultural activities that are unique to the country. You would be wise in taking this opportunity if you are interested in learning a practical foreign language and/or experiencing a beautiful country. Even though I was apprehensive leaving for the summer, I enjoyed my time, learned a lot and went back the following year, too.
